Default internet plan

Please Login to Remove!

I pay for the bis installed on my 8900, which only works great with bbpin, but the internet speed is very slow. I was thinking that it was the limited internet speed as my plan said.But yesterday i put my SIM on an 3gIphone and it dl @ 70-80kbps :s
Im assuming my internet is limited by my phone. not the service.
any way to increase the speed on edge?

The speed of EDGE is the speed of EDGE.
Thats it.
Nothing you can do.

Well basically the 8900 you will only get EDGE unless you upgrade to a BB that is 3G. switching internet provider wont change a thing!!
