oh man 44kbps your flying. trust me my edge isn't that much better if im on the first floor. now if i go on the second floor it will get to 150kpbs. but the 3rd floor the single drops off to 0. outside with no elevation it gets around 100kbps. i swear im gonna make a low band video site people seem to forget tons of people still have slow net at times.
I was stuck on EDGE a couple days ago at another location. I was lucky to get 6-8kbps. I wonder if the Galaxy Nexus has a very poor 2G radio. Will have to force EDGE in a good signal area and see what happens.
