Optus Upgrading 2G Network To EDGE

Josh Taylor over at ZDNet has picked up on the fact that Optus has been quietly upgrading its 2G network over the past few weeks, with certain base towers in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide supporting EDGE speeds. Other towers around the country will probably need a little bit of work before the update becomes network-wide.

While having a better 3G/HSPA network is probably of more interest to most Giz-reading Optus customers, increasing the 2G network is also important for the non smartphone wielding customers out there.

Both Telstra and Vodafone have been offering EDGE services for a while though...
