Singaporean mobile operator StarHub has selected Huawei Technologies to provide and support future upgrades of its 3G mobile network, including the cellco’s forthcoming high speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) service. In a press statement, StarHub said it had picked the Chinese vendor based on the strength of their progressive 3G technology roadmap. StarHub hopes that Huawei’s technology will deliver the full capabilities of HSDPA in 2007, including an upgrade to 14.4Mbps by year end. StarHub launched its 3G service in 2005 and at the end of September 2006 has 128,000 3G customers.
