EDGE is more or less the equivalent of EvDO. EDGE is for GSM networks like AT&Tingular while EvDO is for CDMA networks like Sprint & Verizon. Which one is better depends mostly on who you ask. I consistently test at 700-900Kbps over EvDO; the "advertised" rate is 400Kbps-2Mbps so I'm right where I should be (the 2Mb is peak/burst). BTW, I use 2wire.com to test. Go there & click Speed Meter. John A. Jones, CISSP Americas Information Security Officer Jones Lang LaSalle, Inc.

I noticed that Cingular offers EDGE service. How is that different from EVDO?
