The Good Widely available; easy to use and install; true mobile connectivity that works in moving vehicles.

The Bad Slow; pricey; difficult to determine the kilobytes tallied against your account.

The Bottom Line Cingular's EDGE service isn't the fastest or cheapest cellular data service in the land, but it is among the most widely available.

Cingular EDGE service

If you're a mobile professional working in the field and in need of Internet connectivity, Cingular's EDGE service can come to the rescue. This is especially true if you find yourself needing connectivity off the beaten path, since Cingular's EDGE service is currently more widely available than faster 3G services. With coverage in more than 13,000 cities and towns and on 39,000 miles of highways, EDGE is still among the best mobile connectivity offerings available for hardened road warriors.
