Vodafone Germany Launches HSDPA Services
Posted on 10-Mar-2006 10:58. | Tags Filed under: News.

Vodafone Germany has introduced its Mobile Broadband offering, supported by Ericsson's HSDPA solution.

HSDPA will be available first in the German cities Hanover, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf and Munich and eventually throughout the entire WCDMA network, which today covers more than 70 percent of the German population. Vodafone will promote HSDPA as "UMTS Broadband" to their German customers.

Ericsson says its mobile broadband solution HSDPA provides high data throughput rates comparable to wireline broadband access over DSL technology, while also offering more than twice the effective capacity of WCDMA and shortening response times for interactive services, overall improving the end user's experience.

In addition to the commercial launch at CeBIT, Vodafone is demonstrating the second phase of Mobile Broadband with up to 10 Mbit/s over HSDPA as well as Ericsson's HSUPA (High Speed Uplink Packet Access) with up to 1.5 Mbit/s. HSDPA and HSUPA enable Mobile Broadband services comparable to services over DSL.
