Mobile operator T-Mobile and Nokia have signed an agreement for Nokia to deliver its HSDPA solution to T-Mobile in Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
The High Speed Packet Downlink Access (HSDPA) is a software upgrade to the WCDMA (3G) network, increasing UMTS speeds to between 1-2 Mbps from the current 384kbps limit.
Under the agreement, Nokia will supply T-Mobile with its HSDPA solution as well as capacity expansions to T-Mobile's radio networks in the three countries. In addition, installation, commissioning and network optimization services are included in the deal.
T-Mobile plans to start the roll-out of HSDPA in Germany in 2006 and then extend it to the Netherlands and the United Kingdom afterwards.
