    Since ATT is supposedly increasing the speed of their EDGE network due to the "iphony" have you noticed an increase in speed? I haven't. I still get about 165k. Not sure if it will ever get any better than that.

    165K is pretty Damn good. I think ATT was only trying to get from 40K average to 80K average

    That's what I was afraid of. I guess I was just dreaming about having faster then what I have.

    I get 155K when I test it on my 680. Assuming I'm in a spot with 3G coverage, what's a real world number I'd likely get with a 750? Is it a huge difference?

    Thanks!

    How do you test the speed?

    Some areas will get the bump before others. Nonetheless, changing the DNS entries (via OpenDNS) will let in some speed before the switch is flicked on AT&T's side.

    Really? Changing the DNS server will make your download speeds faster?

    No. It does quicken up IP lookup considerable from the dynamic DNS servers that Cingy use and therefore give the perception of a faster connection. In some cases, sites will load faster if they are pulling info from other servers.

    Just making sure..

    BTW, this unfortunately doesn't do the 680 (perhaps later too?) users much good, as it always defaults back to the Cingular MEdia profile. Perhaps the first profile in the list, not sure..

    I think Butler supposedly can "fix" that but so far it seems to not work, I should try it again.

    Actually, you can make a dupe of the defaualt Media Net connection and then change that one and have that one as the main one. I've done so and it works just fine.

    Nope, always goes back to the default Cingular one, not the duplicated/edited one. Maybe I'll try it again, perhaps later FW fixed that.

    I'm up to 187 kbps in Boston; up from an average of about 150kbps.
