Telstra 21

By Gary R, in , posted: 17-Feb-2009 10:40

Tesltra has announced at the GSMA Mobile World Conference that from the 23rd February Telstra customers will experience the fastest mobile network speeds in the world. The 'Telstra 21' network will offer peak download rates of 21Mbps and peak upload of 5.76Mbps. No word yet on what the actual expected average speeds will be but I am sure they will be a vast improvement over what is currently offered. With this announcement Telstra totally leapfrog their competitors who are still (mostly) offering peaks of 3.6Mbps.

Telstra commissioned an independent Productivity Study which concludes that the benfit of faster mobile broadband could add .7% gains to the Aussie GDP.
 
To support the Telstra upgrade, Sierra Wireless has released a PCI Mini Express card and a USB Modem

This is actually good news for us in New Zealand as Telstra operate at the same frequency as Telecom. So hopefully we will see some 21Mbps product here soon.

Woohoo, this bodes extremely well for Telecoms w850 and eventually Vodafone 900/2100 UMTS network.

HSPA + is certainly going to change some things here soon enough.
