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.
