Connect contracts Novatel for HSDPA datacards

15 Jun 2006

Austrian mobile operator Connect Austria has contracted Novatel Wireless to supply it with HSDPA-enabled laptop datacards ahead of its planned launch of so-called 3.5G wireless services. Novatel Wireless will provide Connect customers with its Merlin U740 PC Cards, which the two companies say will offer download speeds of up to 1.8Mbps. Connect has yet to confirm a commercial launch date for HSDPA services.
