Hi Laurent,

I just got a new SE W890 which has Edge and 3.5G (I can't figure out
if that's the same thing...). I'm using the PAN to connec to my N810
to the phone's modem. The sevice provider is 3 (http://www.three.com/)
and I have a 1GB/month plan at Euro 21. With your test file (from
Sweden at night), I got up to 55Kb/s with an average at around 44Kb/s.

Good luck with your search!
