Nokia and T-Mobile Test HSDPA in Europe

Nokia and T-Mobile completed High Speed Downlink Data Packet Access (HSDPA) calls in T-Mobile's live network in the UK, the Netherlands and Germany. The solutions will now be used to further progress testing with T-Mobile prior to commercial launches.

The Nokia HSDPA solution is a software upgrade to the WCDMA 3G network that offers end users significantly faster download speeds - up to 1.8 Mbps in the first phase, compared to 384 kbps on standard WCDMA 3G networks.

Nokia already has over 20 HSDPA contracts, 7 of which have been disclosed.
