Optus has pledged to upgrade its entire 3G network to HSDPA by the end of May 2007. ‘The upgrade is well underway, with many sites already completed; over six hundred sites in Sydney and Melbourne to be ready for service by May 2007; and all Optus 3G sites across Australia upgraded to HSDPA by the end of May 2007,’ the SingTel subsidiary said in a statement issued today. Optus said its HSDPA coverage would extend to 55% of the Australian population by late May, with plans to boost that reach to 96% over the next three years.
