T-Mobile launches HSDPA with help from Nokia

T-Mobile announced the launch of HSDPA services in Germany, the U.K. and The Netherlands, however, only Germany is live now. The others, apparently, will go live later in the year. Nokia supplied the infrastructure for the networks and is an existing supplier to the carrier for its WCDMA networks. Nokia says the initial deployments of HSDPA will offer 1 to 2 Mbps, but eventually the service will ramp up to 14.4 Mbps as the industry standard states. Germany got the green light this week so attendees of the CeBIT telecom conference in Hanover could experience the new technology.
