    Greetings. Looks like T-Mobile is finally making progress on their data network! I am at a restaurant in Tysons Corner, Va this morning, a suburb of Washington DC. Mobile speed test is reporting 108 to 116kbps!!! Wow, this is cool. I can't tell if it is a UMTS connection or Edge, but it's definitely fast. Now we need UMTS in the metro trains!

    cool. still 36kbps here in south Arlington, which is closer to DC. how weird. I don't want to switch, but if Cingular drops their prices and this EDGE fiasco is still unclear, I might make the leap. Maybe T-Mo wants to wait til there's an official rollout, but they could cut us bandwidth geeks a break and release a little info...

    I just got back from a trip to DC, and I was getting 60-65k via the dslreports/mspeed test. Not as fast as others, but much snappier than what I get with T-Mobile in Southeast PA.

    There's another thread floating around that talks about having the latest SIM card yields faster speeds due to newer feature support. I'm still using my SIM from when I got my Treo 180 on VoiceStream. Could this be a reason I still wasn't getting speeds you guys are seeing?

    my sim is from SE T610, purchased August 2003. I have no idea if SIM cards have any relevance.

    It may have been EDGE but it sure wasn't UMTS. AT&T is the only carrier in the US that has rolled out UMTS. T-Mobile is way behind the other carriers in this regard. Check out this link for more information http://www.3gamericas.org/English/Te.../QA/umtsqa.cfm
