HSDPA shows 130% growth


Thumbs UpThe GSA (Global mobile Suppliers Association for the two in the back that didn’t know) has just published a new survey that shows 58 HSDPA-enabled devices have been launched by 18 different suppliers — a product growth of 130% in the last 6 months. 26 of these 58 devices are mobile handsets.

That’s not all. We had previously told you that the number of HSDPA networks planned, in deployment or launched has reached 108 in 51 countries; the number has now reached 120 in 55 countries, of which 58 are providing commercial services in 37 countries today. GSA forecasts that the number of commercial HSDPA networks world-wide will reach 85 by end 2006. Looks like HSDPA is here to stay.
