Red Eye Chicago has already started putting the paces on AT&T’s strained network by testing the download times of songs on both Edge and 3G showing what we iPhoners can get used to downloading music untethered and outside of Wi-Fi networks.  The test song was “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” by The Police.  The results?  It took TiPB 1 minute and 3 seconds to download the song over 3G, while Edge puttered along a little slower taking a full 23 minutes!  Both tests were conducted with five bars (we know how reliable those little bars are now!)  Now of course speeds will vary by location as I hope to god Edge isn’t that slow everywhere.  So for all of you wondering how long it would take to download over AT&T’s network, now you know!
