First off, Dayo has had a good browsing experience with Etisalat’s EDGE network at his location. He reported that pages opened fast generally and satisfactorilly.
However, at the office today, where we both tried out the EDGE service, we ended up disappointed. It just failed to perform. The Etisalat portal homepage (as well as other mobile URLs we tried) just wouldn’t load completely.
We concluded that it must be a location problem. Incidentally, the Etisalat official handling SIM/line redemption at the neighbourhood redemption centre found his network’s connection unusable too. Hopefully, it’ll get fixed soon and then I can run some more tests.
