Today, T-Mobile Germany announced a mobile data push for its UMTS/HSDPA network. First off all, the German carrier announced new mobile data plans which includes a real flat for its GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA and HSUPA networks.
The new web'n'walk Connect L flat rate allows users to use the Internet for 39.95 Euro per month (on a 24 month contract) and T-Mobile has already upgraded parts of its HSDPA network to 7.2 Mbps. At the rest of the UMTS network, HSDPA is available with 3.6 Mbps. Furthermore, T-Mobile today announced that it has finished the HSUPA upgrade in its whole UMTS network.

From now, T-Mobile customers can upload files with 1.4 Mbps, if supported by the mobile device (for instance the HTC Touch Diamond, available from T-Mobile as the MDA compact IV is one of the first Windows Mobile smartphones to support HSUPA). Furthermore, T-Mobile announced today that it will immediately start to upgrade HSUPA from today's launched 1.4 Mbps to 2.0 Mbps.

UPDATE: I hate press releases which try to fool journalists. As a matter of fact, T-Mobile's new web'n'walk_Connect_L isn't a a real flat plan with unlimited access to HSDPA at all but T-Mobile is throttling the access to 64 Kbps/16 Kbps if the users reaches 5 GB during the billing period. That's definitely bad and degrades previous conditions where the limit was at 10 GB. As a matter of fact, especially because the 16 Kbps are absolutely useless for professional users, T-Mobile's Connect L isn't an option anymore. Hopefully Vodafone Germany and O2 Germany stays reasonable and don't decrease its current fair flat limits from 10 GB to 5 GB as well.

Cheers ~ Arne
