    It seems to me that over the course of the past year less and less people have been using the Edge(2G) network in my area because the speeds and latency have gradually been improving. Here are two snapshots I just took which initially alerted me to this.

    Latency looks the same and it doesn't look like much of an improvement

    Nice photoshop job. ;)

    EDIT:
    I'll take that back...
    I see you switched the display form MB/s to kB/s.
    For a sec I thought that read 20.8MB/s over EDGE. :eek:

    The latency used to be 3000ms.

    And posting no evidence of what the speeds were before proves nothing.

    Touché. I've got a test from back in November uploading now to compare speeds.

    I initially didn't give a thought about it. I had to dig into my speed test results to find that though because I do several network tests in different locations daily.
