Top Data Speed with Bluetooth?

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.nokia (More info?)

I am attempting to connect T-Mobile's data service to my laptop via. a
Nokia 3650 with Bluetooth. I was told that T-Mobile's data speed was
33-56k but I only get 19-21. Then I was told that BT has a upper
bandwidth limit of 19.8K so I will never get the full T-Mobile speed.
Does BT have an upper speed limit? How can I check the actual data
throughput of the connection between the computer and phone?

Thanks

    Wherever you saw that bluetooth was limited to 19.8 was wrong. Most
    bluetooth devices will support speed up to 700k and some over a megabit.
    When I was on T-mobile those were typical speeds. Recently, I switched
    to Cingular and got a EDGE phone. I now see speed averaging about 80k
    with a poor signal and up to 300k with a good one and its all done over
    bluetooth.

    quote from

    http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/bluetooth9.htm

    "Bluetooth can transmit up to 721 kilobits per second (Kbps) in one
    direction, with 57.6 Kbps in the other. If the use calls for the same speed
    in both directions, a link with 432.6-Kbps capacity in each direction can be
    made."
