Broadband access is also getting even faster for UMTS mobile communications. According to René Obermann, Member of the Board of Management responsible for Mobile Communications at Deutsche Telekom, commercial use of what is known as high-speed UMTS based on HSDPA will be launched in time for CeBIT 2006.
Speeds will initially be increased to up to 1.8 Mbit/s. This is particularly practical for using Internet applications on devices in the fast-growing pocket computer segment and for laptop applications.

"High-speed UMTS will then be available wherever T-Mobile already offers UMTS coverage. HSDPA enables us to offer a high-speed mobile experience outside our WLAN network, which offers access to 16,500 hotspots worldwide."

Transmission speeds will gradually even be increased to up to 7.2 Mbit/s. HSDPA also enables complex intranet applications or Internet pages to be accessed quickly and significantly reduces the time spent waiting for pages to load. T-Mobile will incidentally be the first operator to put HSDPA-enabled laptop cards onto the market in the fall.
