Frontline: iPhone Shows Need for New Wireless Network

BY Grant Gross

Complaints about the speed of the network that Apple Inc.'s new iPhone connects to points to the need for a new broadband wireless network in the U.S., said a businessman proposing one. The iPhone uses AT&T Inc.'s EDGE network, which AT&T says averages speeds of 100 kilobits to 150 kilobits per second. But one review in the Wall Street Journal called the network "pokey," and a review in the New York Times called the network "excruciatingly slow," saying users may "almost ache for a dial-up modem."
