    max_data_rate sounds like a good idea to me. Or connection_speed? What would “GPRS” mean though? There are a couple of different classes: HYPERLINK

      What would �GPRS� mean though? There are a couple of different classes:



      HYPERLINK "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gprs"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gprs



      The same goes with EDGE



      Also, do you measure in mbits/s or kbits/s?



      ie, would 3G be 1.8 or 1800? Would GPRS be 60 or 0.06?

      Not "max_bitrate" - this could easily be confused with something to do
      with the bitrate of a video stream -- currently we have that as
      "streaming_video_-max_bit_rate"-.

      How about "max_data_bit_-rate" or "max_data_rate" or something. Something
      to get the idea that it's the data connection here, rather than any
      other bit rate on the handset.

      PS I await the first handset with "streaming_video_-max_bit_rate" >
      "max_data_bit_-rate" :D

        Possibly suitable use of "kibi" and "kilo" in the names would be good?
