Journal mr100percent's Journal: AT&T ramps up EDGE for iPhone

Electronista and Gizmodo are reporting on AT&T's Operation Fine Edge, where they are increasing EDGE coverage and speeds on their network and lowering latency, in preparation for the rollout of the iPhone by the end of the month. Gizmodo reports it's not the protocol, but the bandwidth of the towers that is the issue. According to an internal AT&T document, they're dropping in more T-1s in their poorest performing towers, hoping to increase the minimum from 40kbps to 80kpbs. (EDGE's real world max is about 200kbps.)
