Looks like people are reporting greatly increased speeds over edge. Did ATT unleash the fine edge? hmmm...
there was a report a earlier in the week that all upgrades had been completed. I didn't really notice much difference last weekend, but this morning I did notice that it was a little faster than it had been in the past.

don't expect too much though because it is still painfully slow compared to broadband speeds.

with edge there is no UNLEASHING its OK for when you want to check something out but long sessions are best kept on a computer.

agreed. I have noticed some improvement as well. I've been using a Blackberry 8800...sold it on EBAY today.
