Sri Lankan newspaper the Daily Mirror reports that the country’s leading cellco by subscribers Dialog Telekom has launched a pilot network based on HSPA+ (also known as HSPA Evolution) technology. The operator is claiming the first implementation of the technology in the South Asian region, which allows theoretical mobile download speeds of up to 21Mbps, and uplink speeds of up to 5.76Mbps. Upon completion of a proposed trial phase, Dialog plans to progressively expand its HSPA+ coverage across its existing 3.5G HSDPA network spanning Colombo, Kandy, Galle, Kurunegala, Anuradhapura, Nuwara Eliya, Trincomalee and other major towns.
