AT&T Boosting its EDGE Service in Advance of iPhone

There’s an interesting little piece over at Endgadget about an apparent spike in speeds on the EDGE network that has customers pulling down data at speeds in excess of 200KBPS. Speculation is that AT&T is boosting the performance of their EDGE network to counter the flood of iPhone users who will be jumping on AT&T’s EDGE network expecting to be able to surf.

Customers of EDGE are delighted as some report they are able to use web applications for the first time on EDGE.

[Given that I am seeing speeds between 700kbps and 1Mbps up and down the East coast on Verizon’s network, it’s kind’ve sad to see such excitement over 200Kbps.]
