Users of AT&T's much maligned Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE) data network are reporting faster download speeds beginning late Thursday. The company is believed to be tweaking network speeds in anticipation of today's iPhone launch.
Engadget has found download speeds peaking past 200 kilobits per second (kbps) on the newly enhanced EDGE network. Normally download speeds hover around 170 kbps as opposed to EVDO which can peak as high as 700 kbps.
You can test your mobile download speeds by visiting DSLReports.com/mspeed on your mobile device.
I did three tests this morning on my Treo 700p running on the Verizon EVDO network and was able to achieve an average download speed of 325 kbps. For my tests I downloaded the 200k file.
Try the "mspeed" test on your mobile device's browser and post your three test averages in the TalkBack section below. Try the 200k file (to be consistent) and don't forget to mention what device you're using and what network you're on.
