Probably jumping the gun but some body must be testing the new Aircard 595 out there or other devices???

Any idea of test bed or is it only Welly or Auck??

Would be good to know considering the red team are launching HSDPA next month on the 12th with 3.6mbps downstream. That has to be seen to believed!

Anyway it would be good to know if anyone has seen the testing going on for the roll out?

Looking forward to that, even if it is only going to be rolled out in main cities etc.

I was getting 1.8Mbps on EVDO Rev0! RevA project is progressing well. I can't reveal figures yet but put it this way it will be a step up again from what the opposition is offering.

/me slaps tonyhughes around a bit with a large trout.

How do YOU manage to bring Vista into all of this? I also think that its appropriate that Vodafones colour is red....

***********************************


The max downlink speed for Rev A 3.1Mbps and 1.8Mbps up. VF HSDPA will be 3.6Mbps down and will remain at 128?? up.


So how does that beat the 'opposition' unless there is something about Telecoms Rev A you're not telling us... is it really Rev B?

I can confirm that HSDPA is max 384kbps on the uplink.

Got to know what the competition is capable of!!!!

Wondering with all this blistering speed Vodas HSDPA network will be offering, where will you be able to get it?

Seriously speed alone is not going to win this race, useablility and availablity will, thats why REVO now & A in the near future will kick ass, you can actually use it in many more places because of the nature if the Technology, plus where Telecom have already rolled out.

Looking forward to seeing the marketing Voda put behind this next month!!
