3G CDMA disconnecting during high data download

I have been facing some strange issues from the day i got my photon,

My 3G CDMA (EVDO) works fine in normal scenario (with normal web page viewing) but when ever i try to do large file download / try watching youtube with HD video the EVDO gets disconnected and i think the radio re-starts after around 1-2 mins and the data connection is up again.

Same thing happens if i try using speedtest (may be that also tries to send big chunk of data to test BW) and when i try download big files of more than around 5 MB in Google play.

When this data disconnection happens in my EVDO signal bar only upload arrow is being shown and no download.

This issue is persistant in all the Rom's i tried (have faced with Stock/CM7/MUI/CNA/CM9).

Using the photon in CDMA with Reliance in India.

One more observation is that in areas with low signal strength the disconnect is not very frequent (may be as my Download speed is also reduced)

Any suggestion to resolve the issue please.
