We spent a whole lot of money implementating the GPRS system in order to get a jump start in the wireless data industry. We did the same thing with Wi-Fi through our hotspot service. I know T-Mobile wants to be on top of the data game, because it attracts youthful customers who tend to spend a lot on extra services, and business customers, who tend to have low churn rates and high monthly bills. Unfortunately this may not be possible for us at the moment. Our GPRS service is definitely not the fastest out there, but it's not that much slower then EDGE. Considering the cost of implementating a data technology for use by customers, upgrading just a small step isn't going to be a financial possibility. I'm hoping we'll be on top of the game soon though. Maybe next round Smile
