Huge HSDPA Deployments in 2006

By Glenn Fleishman

The Financial Times reports on a “flurry” of contracts worldwide to build HSDPA networks: The upgrade costs for HSDPA from existing GSM-based networks are apparently modest enough to make it a very attractive option. The current rollouts by Cingular and others are equivalent to or possibly slightly faster than EVDO speeds—no real-world test results yet in metropolitan markets—but the next generation of HSDPA will offer end users several Mbps.

HSDPA reduces latency, too, which makes it seem zippier and thus might make it an ADSL replacement technology in some markets. It seems more likely to have that potential in underserved but middle-class areas that are in the suburb or exurb regions around towns.

The FT also notes that HSDPA handsets won’t be out for a year because of power consumption, size, and cost.
