Vodafone started testing the fastest standard of mobile Internet access in the Czech Republic, the new generation of HSPA+ Dual Carrier DC 43.2 Mbps. While the existing technology enables theoretical speeds of up to 21.6 Mbps, the new generation is twice as fast. The actual maximum speed is expected to reach approximately 30 Mbps. The testing is being carried out in Beroun.

The actual maximum speed as mentioned above can only be reached with the Vodafone K4605 data USB modem, which supports the theoretical speed of up to 43.2 Mbps. This modem is not available yet at Vodafone. Next week, selected companies located in Beroun, which are clients of Vodafone, will be the first to test the new HSPA+ standard. If the testing is successful, Vodafone plans to launch the standard in other areas next year.

At the same time, Vodafone is significantly increasing the capacity for data transmissions. Gradually, it converts 3G transmitters to the new HSPA+ standard, which enables to download data at the speed of up to 21.6 Mbps. The actual speed ranges between 12 and 18 Mbps, depending on the data device used, the distance from the nearest transmitter and the current demand on the cell. The HSPA+ standard is supported by the Samsung Galaxy SII or Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 handsets. The speed can also be reached with the Vodafone K4510 data USB modem with an automatic installation for PC, which is available at Vodafone.

Vodafone is the only Czech mobile operator to allow all customers to use the highest speed facilitated by the HSPA+ standard, regardless of which tariff they use.
