High Speed Mobile Internet

HSDPA + the new standard Internet access mobile operators such as T-Mobile, Vodafone, O2 are planning in the near future the expansion of HSDPA network to customers provide even more server speed. Although the current UMTS yet no coverage with the maximum speed network, theoretically 14,400 Mbit / s are possible, is thinking about a new technology. With HSDPA + speeds are planned, are level on high DSL. According to mobile operators, a download speed of 42 Mbit / s is possible. That would mean that even large files via UMTS in the extension HSDPA + could be downloaded within a very short time from the Internet. More multiple-antenna transmission is intended for this expansion.

This technique is already used range very successfully in the Wi-Fi. Another big advantage is that the UMTS licensees must perform no further expansion of its infrastructure. Should be for HSDPA + sufficient customers be found, mobile operators are quite fast with the conversion or Begin the extension of mobile Internet access. With long-term evolution (LTE) networks, there is still a further candidate for mobile Internet access, which is to reach even 100 Mbit/s. Also here faster latency can be realized. For LTE, but large investments in infrastructure are to make. If it is possible the mobile operators here to calculate prices which are similar to a DSL connection, and no longer to limit the UMTS flatrates, 5 GB per payroll period HSDPA + could evolve as a new standard for Internet access. It is however anticipated that this will take years. Peter Lindner
