I ran into a problem and Edge won out. My home network connection was moving so slow (verizon). So I pulled out my iPhone and was able to load 4 pages to my home 1 page loaded.

So if you've got Verizon for your home network, does that mean it's a DSL connection?

Yes it is DSL connection. I had to take my husband to work, let him drive. While on the way, I finished posting this new thread by Edge. I am on the home network now getting ready to time this post by Verizon. I will let you know.


It took 15.2 seconds to get this posted on Home Verizon, it is running slow today. Thankful I have my iPhone as a backup if I wanted something fast.

EDGE is plenty fast in ATL, I have no issues. I am very surprised with how quick the service.

I live in Maryland, and my EDGE averages anywhere between 180 - 200 kb/s

edge must be quicker in different locations...
I find using edge while browsing these forms to be quite alright. The only page that i hate using on edge is CNN.com
