EDGE (Enhanced Data for GSM Environment) : A digital mobile-phone technology that acts as a bolt-on enhancement to 2G (second-generation) and 2.5G General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) networks. This technology works in TDMA and GSM networks. EDGE (also known as EGPRS) can function on any network with GPRS deployed on it, provided the carrier implements the necessary upgrades. EDGE can offer Internet connectivity and high-speed data applications such as video services and other multimedia benefits. It has been touted as the final stage of GSM standards and is intended to support data rates of up to 384kbps. Cingular Wireless and T-Mobile have EDGE networks in the United States.
