How do I put this?
I do not have statistics for the rest of the world, but I do know that in my experience here in Nigeria, using GPRS/EDGE for almost anything is a painful experience.
In my opinion, the least internet capability of any device that you want to use for web browsing, social networking and/or instant messaging should be 3G. Add 3.5G/HSDPA and that’s even better.
But my experience is just that. Can everyone share their experiences and point out the following:
Have you used GPRS/EDGE exclusively on any device?
What device was that?
Where? Your location.
How stable was it?
How usable in terms of speed?
Would you recommend a GPRS/EDGE only device to someone looking to get online via mobile?
Any other info welcome. The more the details you provide, the better. Thanks all!
