TIM Hellas ups its speed

22 Nov 2006

Greece’s third largest cellco TIM Hellas has launched High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) services in partnership with manufacturer Nokia, providing mobile broadband data services at speeds of up to 1.8Mbps over its W-CDMA 3G network. Its new 3.5G platform reportedly offers average actual speeds of around 800kbps. In August Nokia signed an extension to its existing W-CDMA contract with TIM Hellas to cover the supply of a HSDPA solution and its new ‘Flexi’ base stations. Under the agreement, the Finnish vendor acts as TIM Hellas’ sole 3G radio network supplier and will also deliver a mobile TV solution.
