Roger Wireless Launches HSDPA Services in Canada
Posted on 3-Nov-2006 13:30 | Tags Filed under: News



Canadian mobile operator Roger Wireless is launching its HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) service across the country, covering nine major markets, with plans to expand to the top Canadian markets during 2007.

Rogers is the first operator in Canada to offer HSDPA service and the second in all the Americas.

With HSDPA customers will benefit with high speed mobile connectivity, connecting to the Internet wirelessly at speeds averaging 550-800 Kbps (kilobits per second) and reduced latency to 70-100 milliseconds. The service allows for simultaneous voice and data service using the same spectrum allocation.

The 3G Americas, a wireless trade organization representing the GSM family of technologies, says that analysts predict that globally, there will be 100 million UMTS and HSDPA customers by the end of 2006. It is expected that almost all of the 291 operators committed to deploying UMTS will eventually enhance their offered services with HSDPA.
