debitel launches HSDPA service

4 Aug 2006

Germany’s largest wireless reseller, debitel, has selected Sierra Wireless to supply HSDPA wide area network datacards to provide laptop users with high speed network access. The debitel SURF@go card 850 is designed to provide wireless connectivity to e-mail, the internet and online corporate applications over 3G networks, at data speeds comparable to wired broadband connections. Fully functional on HSDPA, UMTS, EDGE, and GPRS networks, the SURF@go card offers average data rates of 500kbps to 800kbps, with bursts over 1Mbps on HSDPA networks. In areas where HSDPA or UMTS network coverage is not available, the cards will connect to EDGE and GSM/GPRS networks and enable international roaming.
