Nokia Siemens Networks, T-Mobile Team Up For Faster 3G

Nokia Siemens Networks and T-Mobile are teaming up to bring a new technology to life which, called Long Term HSPA Evolution (LTHE), could offer speeds of more than 650 Mbit/s, nearly reaching the 1Gbit/s peak.

Today’s HSPA+ speeds are around 40Mbps but once commercially available in 2013, LTHE will offer superior data speed outpacing 4G technology. The standard has already been approved with the occasion of this week’s 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) RAN plenary meeting. Long Term HSPA Evolution might still be at least two years away from deploying but Nokia Siemens is already using high speeds offered by the technology and once it will operate in 2013, T-Mobile will be the first to run it, but an exclusivity is so far undisclosed.
