T-Mobile shows off HSDPA

9 Aug 2005

T-Mobile Netherlands has given a live demonstration of HSDPA mobile phone technology to business clients in Rotterdam. The cellco is planning a pilot launch of the ‘very high speed’ data platform later this year and a full commercial launch in the first half of 2006. HSDPA provides download speeds of up to 1.8Mbps – around five times as fast as UMTS and eight times as fast as EDGE.
