Re: Edge

Its basically an extension over the GPRS, with much faster data rates (around 250kbps). Its meant to provide "3G" class type of service without the need for expensive upgrade over existing base stations, since it'll be using the same GSM timeslots (and thus, frequency).

What is costing telco companies a lot is the HSPDA type of infrastructure upgrades and licences, which is the 3G technology most people are talking about that has much faster speeds.
