    I posted this in the US GSM board but I thought people on this board would appreciate hearing this.

    I live in OC and as of 8pm I am consistently getting over 100 kbps again. Has anyone else noticed this? Let's hope this is the end to the problems.

    I live in OC too and the past week has been real bad. I just did 3 tests and the worst was 50kb and the best was 93kb. I dont know if this is a coincidence but before I downloaded the cingular firmware I was getting 99k-125k consistently. I haven't seen those speeds in like 2 weeks.

    Hey guys... sorry for my ignorance, but are you talking about EDGE? If so, how do I measure how fast my connection is?

    Is there anything special I need to do on my Treo to use EDGE? I'm signed up for the unlimited MediaWorks... is that enough?

    Thanks for helping the noobie.

    I dont think so...Although I have seen an improvement in speed, my area apears to be lower than when I first got the treo. When I first tried it I was getting around 95+, now I just seem to get between 50-60k...

    I think the link is actually dslreports.com/mspeed

    Also, I just checked again this morning and I am getting 115 kbps using the 600k test. My speeds are lower (90's kbps) if I use the 200k test.

    I am not sure what has changed but my speeds have definitely improved to back to what they were a few weeks ago. I can stream 128kbps shoutcast stations again!!

    Hopefully the changes Cingular made to South OC will be propogated to where all of you live.
