You're kidding, right?
EDGE maxes out at about 470 kbps - if you get a full channel (8 timeslots)
In most GSM networks one of the timeslots is reserved for signalling (BCCH)
so 7 staying (~420 kbps).
Even this is only true if you get coding scheme 9. But then you'd have to
have a device that supports EDGE at this rates.
Most devices only support up to ~250 kbps (mostly less). Under real life
conditions you'll get about 120 to 200 kbps as best rates.
In germany DSL starts at 384 kbps if the landline is very long. The slowest
available option normally is 1000 kbps. The average should be between 3000
and 6000 kbps. 16000 kbps are available in most areas. Max is at 25000 or
50000 in some cities.
There are other countries like sweden where much higher rates are common.
