hspavshspaeSwedish telecom equipment maker Ericsson and Australian phone company Telstra today announced the launch of an HSPA Evolution-based wireless broadband network that has peak speeds of up to 21 Mbps. In the U.S., AT&T is playing around with this evolutionary broadband technology as part of its planned wireless broadband upgrades. HSPA-Evolution uses MIMO and other such technologies and is able to deliver better battery life and better wake-from-idle time.
