T-Mobile first to offer nationwide HSUPA

T-Mobile announced today that they are to rollout their HSUPA technology nationwide. It means as of today, T-Mobile customers will be able to enjoy speeds of up to 1.4Mbps when uploading photos and videos to the web, a fivefold increase to previous uploading times. In addition, the operator has also upgraded its HSDPA network to speeds of up to 7.2Mbps, matching that offered by Vodafone. However, where as T-Mobile's HSUPA technology is to be deployed across the UK, the HSDPA upgrade will initially be within the M25, though other major cities will benefit during the second half of 2008.

 

Customers who sign up to T-Mobile's Mobile Broadband Plus 24-month tariff will also benefit from a new offer unveiled by the operator. Anyone who signs up to the tariff before 1 October will enjoy a third off for the first three months at a reduced rate of £10 per month, providing better value when using Mobile Broadband at home or abroad. This follows last weeks announcement that T-Mobile is to reduce their data roaming charges by 80%.
