How do I get Network-admin to restrict connection to GSM (Edge) instead of flipping between 3G and Edge and lose connection. Usually it works out-of-the box, but at my current location there are a lot of radio shadows, so the recommendation from my ISP is that I should lock to Edge - which can be done using their own driver in Windows.

How can I do this in Ubuntu

    It doesn't work on 15.10: when I open the settings again it don't show me that it uses 2g. – Alexander Rodin Feb 18 '16 at 17:28
