What do E, H & G mean in my HTC Desire connection status?

Previously when I used T-Mobile the connection status would be either G (basic GSM) or 3 (3g), now that I've switched to Giffgaff, I get E, H, or G. I never see 3 at all. 

 

What do these letter codes mean, I'm guessing that G means the same as it always did... but what about the E and H?

 

THanks

E means EDGE, and H I'd be guessing and say it might mean HSDPA, called 3.5g on some phones

 

EDGE is between ordinary GPRS and 3g in speed, and HSDPA is potentially a few times faster than 3g

H is definitely HSDPA on the Desire and what a pleasure it is too.
