T-Mobile activates EDGE in Southern Germany

T-Mobile has announced a couple of months ago that it will upgrade most parts of its GSM/GPRS network in Germany to EDGE. Since then I’ve seen reports that EDGE has been activated here and there but not where I live. Today, I noticed that T-Mobile has also switched to EDGE in the South of Germany near the Lake of Constance where I live. Not that we wouldn’t have excellent 3G coverage here already by all network operators but since the first iPhone won’t be 3G capable and we’ve still got a good number of rural spots in this part of Germany without 3G coverage it’s a welcome move.

Looks like T-Mobile is quite active of continuously improving their 2.5G network.
