|Surf with Speeds of up to 42 Mbps in Swisscom's Mobile Network|
Swisscom has expanded its HSPA+ network to Berne and Zurich, with Basel, Geneva, Lausanne and Lugano set to be upgraded in August this year. The operator offers the Huawei E372 USB stick, which allows peak downlink speeds of up to 42 Mbps and up to 5.6 Mbps in the uplink. Swisscom upgraded its Davos network in time for the World Economic Forum (WEF) in January 2011.
Swisscom is rolling out the latest HSPA+ technology in six Swiss
cities, which will enable mobile data communication speeds of up to 42
Mbps. In addition, Swisscom is now offering the Huawei E372 USB stick
which allows customers to connect their laptops to the Internet when on
the move and enjoy surfing speeds of up to 42 Mbps. All NATEL data
premium customers will be able to take advantage of this surfing speed.
The high speeds can be used with the Huawei E372 USB stick, which is now available from Swisscom in combination with the NATEL data premium subscription. The USB stick costs CHF 1 with a subscription and CHF 249 for customers without a subscription.
HSPA+ (High Speed Package Access) is a further development in the UMTS mobile communication standard. The expansion of HSPA+ to speeds of 42 Mbps will see Swisscom significantly increase network capacity, which will allow customers to benefit from an even faster mobile Internet experience. Swisscom invests hundreds of millions of francs every year in its mobile infrastructure.
