Option Releases HSDPA card for laptops
Option N.V. is releasing the GlobeTrotter HSDPA, a new product within its HSDPA portfolio, capable of delivering speeds of up to 1.8Mbps over an HSDPA network.

The speed is up to 4.5 times faster than maximum data rates available over 3G UMTS. If no HSDPA network is available the data card will automatically establish the fastest possible connection using 3G, EDGE or GPRS.

The GlobeTrotter HSDPA is already shipping in support of the commercial roll-out plans of network operators in EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa).

Serving nearly 3.4 million customers, Mobilkom Austria will become one of the first operators to offer Option's new HSDPA data card when it starts retailing the Vodafone Mobile Connect Card Broadband (HSDPA/UMTS/EDGE) on 23 January 2006.

At the same time, a free software upgrade to HSDPA will be made available to any Mobilkom's customers who previously purchased the UMTS+EDGE 'HSDPA Ready' card.
