As the first provider in Europe, mobilkom austria yesterday commercially activated enhanced mobile broadband services powered by HSPA Evolution, Ericsson's latest high-speed broadband access technology. HSPA Evolution, commercially marketed as HSPA+ by mobilkom austria, boosts network capacity in and enables peak data rates of up to 21 Mbps, significantly improving users' mobile broadband experience. The step to 21 Mbps peak rate adds a new dimension to the broadband experience, providing significantly faster internet browsing and file downloads. It increases network capacity and allows a greater number of customers to enjoy higher mobile broadband speeds especially in congested areas.

Ericsson is the main supplier for the upgrade of mobilkom austria's WCDMA/HSPA radio access network with the HSPA Evolution step to 21 Mbps, and is also responsible for network deployment and integration services. Transmission speed of up to 28 Mbps will be reached in the course of the year.

At the moment, HSPA+ is available in parts of Vienna only but a further roll-out is planned. As the first data device, which supports HSPA+ at 21 Mbps, mobilkom Austria is offering the Huawei E270 USB dongle.

Don't think so because Yesss is using Orange's network (formerly known as One) not mobilkom's A1 network. According to their FAQ, Orange is "only" offering HSDPA up to 7.2 Mbps.
