What do you mean by that ?
How did you measure ?. If you go to manual selection and select the
openbts network manually on 17 phones at the exact same time, it
should take way less than 1 min. In the worst config you have 4
control channels. Let's say a worst case of 5 sec per LU (that should
be faster, especially with no auth and no cipher), that's only 25 sec
for 17 MS.
