Nokia supports Polkomtel’s HSDPA launch

27 Nov 2006

Polish cellco Polkomtel has launched a commercial High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) network in the Warsaw area using equipment supplied by Nokia. The HSDPA solution enables Polkomtel to offer its customers mobile data services at speeds up to five times faster than its current W-CDMA service. ‘We at Polkomtel take pride in offering our customers the best quality and the most advanced services, so upgrading our 3G network to HSDPA was a natural step,’ said Thomas Eberle, Chief Technical Officer of Polkomtel. ‘Rapid rollout capability and technical expertise are extremely valuable when introducing new services to our customers. We have the Nokia W-CDMA 3G network, so [the] upgrade to HSDPA only required new software, which allowed us to launch HSDPA services extremely easily and fast.’
