Where did you get these numbers? I have been reading on EDGE capabilities and from what I read each EDGE slot is 48kbs as opposed to 9.6k for GPRS. Clas 10 has 5 active slots which are configurable to 3+2 or 4+1. To get 236 you would have to have all 5 slots going one direction which can't work for TCP/IP. How was the test done?

At 4+1 you would have 192kbs down and 48kbs up minus overhead. The class slot information I found here http://www.gsmworld.com/technology/gprs/class.shtml. Can you point me to where you got your information? I'm just trying to learn.

Also, class 10 is supposed to be configurable, is this user configurable or carrier configurable? Has anyone seen settings on the 8700?
