How slow can a GPRS connection be?

For the next two days,I'm at an event called "CeBit PreView" where leading IT and CE companies previewing their CeBIT news. So far so good but for sure I cannot listen all the time without working from here as well. No problem at all, thanks to my UMTS flat rate - I initially thought. Just arrived at the conference in the heart of Munich to figure out, E-Plus has *no* UMTS indoor coverage here! Sorry, but this is really in the center of Munich but no UMTS available? Okay, there is always a fallback solution called GPRS and I just tried to download a file. The GPRS speed is more then surprising:

Can you believe it? 2,71 KB/Sec? That's freakin' slow - even for GPRS! Oh man, looks like it's really time to switch my data carrier... :-(

Cheers ~ Arne
