Briefs: Nokia, T-Mobile develop high-speed network

November 15, 2005

Nokia said Monday it has completed high-speed downlink data packet access calls together with Germany's T-Mobile.

The Finnish telecommunications group said its third-generation phone technology has allowed the two companies to make HSDPA calls in Britain, Germany and the Netherlands.

"The HSDPA calls demonstrate T-Mobile's commitment to raising the bar for the quality of broadband mobile data services," Hamid Akhavan, chief technology officer of T-Mobile, said in a news release. "The calls are a good example of the successful cooperation that is taking place between T-Mobile and Nokia in the field of high speed mobile access and broadband applications."

HSDPA allows users to download even faster on their mobile handsets.
