René Obermann, Deutsche Telekom AG's board member for Mobile Communications, today announced - during T-Mobile's CeBIT press conference - that the German operator will launch HSDPA (as expected) but also EDGE (which was a well hidden secret so far). With HSDPA, the T-Mobile UMTS network will reach speeds of 1.8 Mbit/s to start with. In later stages, this will expand to 7 Mbit/s and upwards.
By launching the EDGE technology, T-Mobile is laying the groundwork for mobile high-speed data traffic, even in the still more widespread GSM regions, with a transmission bandwidth on well over 200 kbit/s.

"You can only provide good service with the best network. That is why we built 3,300 new radio base stations in Germany last year:
2,100 for UMTS and 1,200 for GSM, as well as 6,300 WLAN HotSpots together with T-Com. Today is a special day for us, because we are launching transmission rates of almost two megabits in Germany."

In 2006, network coverage will be improved by stepping up expansion with 2,400 new UMTS locations and 1,200 new GSM locations.

Both, EDGE and HSDPA are available with CeBIT start which begins this Thursday in Hannover, Germany.

Cheers ~ Arne
