Nokia and Siemens to Double EDGE Connection Speed
Brighthand reports that Nokia Siemens Networks is working on a software enhancement to boost EDGE data transfer rate by a fold. This new update, known as EGPRS2, will increase downlink speed up to 1.2Mbps and uplink to 473kbps. What a cool way to bring EDGE up to 3G like performance. With the US being such a big coverage area, this can give folks outside 3/3.5G territory a boost in much needed performance.
