I am in Washington, D.C., in a restaurant on Pennsylvania Avenue, and am posting this message via EDGE (AT&T’s GPRS data service, see http://www.attwireless.com/speed/). I have a PC Card in my notebook, a little antenna pointing upwards, and am online. I am not getting the expected 100K+ throughput, (I don’t know exactly what it is yet, I need to find a good way to measure it) but this feels significantly quicker than GPRS via my cell-phone. Fun stuff (especially with an unlimited data plan).
