Ericsson to upgrade 3G services

24 Sep 2004

Swedish equipment supplier Ericsson has revealed plans to upgrade its 3G network in China with high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA). The new technology will enable shorter transmission and higher system capacity than the existing W-CDMA standard. Ericsson president and CEO Carl-Henric Svanberg believes China will become its biggest market in the next ten years or so.
