This is normal or GPRS, which comes with slow rates and very high latency. Nothing you can do to improve this. EDGE is an update to the GPRS standard, but requires both your mobile and the provider to have EDGE.

8kbps? We're talking about the upload bandwidth, right?

Thats roughly what I get for upload. Download speed is about 47kbps. Just like dial-up days :)
