Not to be outdone by its competition, Cellcom, Liberia’s second largest GSM carrier, has unveiled EDGE (Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution) on its network. A GSM network supporting the EDGE standard in theory should support data rates of 384kbps. But that’s in theory.
I stopped by the Cellcom store the other day to have my SIM card activated and get the access point information.
They set the access point to: web.cellcomnet.net
As of yet I haven’t been able to get this to work. I don’t even see the EDGE icon on my cellphone (Samsung Blackjack). Back when I was in the states I had T-Mobile and the EDGE icon was always on my screen. So I assume it’s an issue with the network. But maybe my SIM card was never properly activated or something?
At any rate, I just thought I’d let the world know that the access point for Cellcom Liberia’s EDGE network is: web.cellcomnet.net
