Confirmed AT&T Improvements to EDGE Network
In what may be a sign of the rollout of the EDGE Evolution network upgrades reported a while back, or confirmation of our rumor report from earlier this month or simply just a fortuitous conicidence, Engadget Mobile are confirming that AT&T wireless users are indeed seeing a drastic improvement in their throughput speeds. According to the article, some users are even reporting speeds in excess of 200kbps, which represents a considerable improvement from the usual slow speeds of the 2.5G EDGE system.
While it's likely that any recent network tweaks or speed improvements have been made to try and placate the hordes of new iPhone users starting today, others of other GSM devices such as the Treo 650, 680, and 750 will also see this boost as a particulawrly positive result of the halo effect the iPhone is having on the industry in general.
