GSM Network Time

Just as a data point, I have checked the default settings in shr-t but
I know I have to use the date command in an ssh session to get date
and time set correctly and also do a hardware sync. Strangely it seems
to keep the time until I re-connect via usb and ssh in, from there the
time goes out.
I am also in Aus (Qld) on savytel (vodafone) network.
Obviously I need to investigate further.
