Elisa launches HSUPA

31 Aug 2007

Finnish telco Elisa, in cooperation with Swedish equipment vendor Ericsson, has announced the launch of HSPA on the uplink (also known as Enhanced Uplink or HSUPA) on its 3G network. HSUPA allows data transfer speeds of 1.4 Mbps, more than three times the speed of traditional 3G networks. Janne Laitala, President, Ericsson Finland, said: ‘HSPA on the uplink is an important milestone in the evolution of HSPA and we are happy to take this step with Elisa. With the take-off of online communities and video-sharing services, greater uplink speed will add a new, mobile dimension to such activities.’
