Has no relevance to this post however, as the OP is on AT&T with EDGE.
I also doubt your 1500 to 1600 kbps speeds too. Typically EVDO is 400 to 800 kbps with a Rev 0 max of 1.2 mbps and Rev A of 2.4 mbps.
What are you using to determine the speed? You might be hitting a proxy too if you are using something like OperaMini. In that case, I think the speed that DSL and others show is the link from the proxy to the web, not from the device to the web.
But if you really are getting that - its great.
