HSDPA. 3.5g

  spikeychris 19:29 29 Mar 06

Looks like HSDPA (3.5g) will be available soon in the UK. Vodafone and Orange are both working on it so by the end of this year it should be on the market. Last year we went to the Isle of Man and tested 3.5 – it ran at 1.8 meg and enabled us to broadcast VOIP as well as offer the net to 8 computers at the same time.

I have just returned from another visit and it works even better, the Island is the testing ground for 02 working with Manx telecom and with a PCMCIA card we used the connectivity all over the Island. I can not state how impressed we are with it – it is true freedom.

Question: Will you adopt this system when it rolls out?

Hi spikeychris,

I was going to post here asking if anybody knew of a good (reasonably priced) satellite service for our outreach work up here in the North East. This could be our answer to the problem we have.

I will certainly be looking out for this in the future.

Hello recap - we use sat link ups as well - 512 in and 256 out at £600 a month.

£600 per month is a bit rich for us (charitable organisation) spikeychris, we would really have to justify the cost to funders. If the HSDPA (3.5g) is more cost effective then I think this would be the way we would go.
