The HSDPA Bandwagon
Never wanting to be the last at the party, IP Inferno would like to jump on the HSDPA bandwagon with Techdirt Wireless. What is HSDPA you say? "High Speed Downlink Packet Access" -- 3.5G -- WiMax, Wifi and whatever killer (as Techdirt wrote...)
3g.co.uk has a press release that "Siemens Communications will be the first vendor..." to launch HSDPA services. This is supposed to offer 2 to 3 MBPS speeds... According to the article:
Field tests will begin with mobile operators in Japan and Europe in second quarter 2005. The HSDPA solution from Siemens, comprising network equipment and HSDPA PC cards, will be available for commercial operation beginning from the fourth quarter of 2005.US operators when? I guess the US will continue to use "whatever."
