Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE) is a third-generation (3G) high-speed mobile data and Internet access technology, with theoretical peak rates of 473 kbps and average throughput of 110-130 kbps. The average rates are fast enough to support a wide range of advanced data services, including streaming audio and video, fast Internet access and large file downloads. EDGE also can support “push-to-talk” services.
EDGE is occasionally referred to as Enhanced GPRS (EGPRS) because it increases the capacity and data throughput of GPRS by three to four times. Like GPRS, EDGE is a packet-based service, which provides customers with a constant data connection.
EDGE is the result of an effort between TDMA (Time Division...

as far as i am informed as of now EDGE data transfer speeds range from 60-170 Kb/sec....
