Cities affected by EDGE upgrade! 200kbps!

Based on data from HowardForums:

New York City: 184kb/s
Queens, NY: 186kb/s-230kb/s
Chicago suburbs: 160kb/s
S. Florida: 176kb/s-204kb/s
Washington DC: 196kb/s-207kb/s
Philly: 191kb/s-264kb/s
Marion, Indiana: 186kb/s-196kb/s
North Seattle: 190kb/s
Dallas: 160kb/s
Half hour north of Boston: 50kb/s
West of East Orange, New Jersey: 365kb/s

This isn't a full list, just data I've collected so far from users who have posted their results.

Amazing! Edge used to be under 100kb/s. Looks like AT&T flipped the switch on fine EDGE

According to Wikipedia:

EDGE can carry data speeds up to 236.8 kbit/s for 4 timeslots (theoretical maximum is 473.6 kbit/s for 8 timeslots).

It is possible, though likely an error...probably had the page in the cache.

There were some reports at the beginning of June about the upgrade. Interesting that they just flipped the switch now....

This should make the YouTube feature usable (buffering time should be acceptable).

Exclamation Are we sure this is EDGE?

Are we sure these are EDGE speeds and not 3G.
I would test EDGE here in Charlotte, but my phone will only do 3G here.

Yes these are all EDGE speeds, apparently AT&T enabled more time slots on their network.

If anyone wants a 3G comparison, my 3G smartphone is getting about 1.6MBPS.

I'm not greedy. I'll take 200-300kbps, if those speeds hold up tomorrow

I don't know why any non business person would need this type of speed. I pay $19 a month for DSL at home and I download at 300kps; which is fine for me even when I play online games. If the iPhone can get half of that (150kps), it think it's great, because will never ever play games, browse the web, or even download on the phone for a very long time on it. That's what my Macbook Pro, xbox 360 is for. And the data plan for the iPhone is roughly $20, add that on to my current plan with ATT, i would end up at $60, before my education discount. (Teachers get 15% off of their phone bill)

Supposedly you won't be able to get a discount on the iphone plans.

I've tried this three times here in Northern Virginia and I'm getting 250-255kbps. (EDGE on a Blackjack.)

I definitely can live with that, especially for email and maps which is what I'll use most often on the road. Anytime that I have to sit down and actually surf the web, I'm almost always around WiFi anyway.

Great little iDay eve upgrade, AT&T!
