In a perfect reflection of mobile phones pushing the communication technology envelope further, Nokia and Siemens recently joined hands in Austria to put an I-HSPA network to test. The results were pretty incredible as the I-HSPA network crunched out stunning data speeds of 10.1 Mbps. These speeds are achieved through a Flat Network Architecture in which the mobile base stations are directly connected to the internet. To give you a perspective of how fast that is, it is almost three times faster than current mobile phone data speeds of 3.6 Mbps. Though these speeds fall very short of the insanely fast speeds that 4G Long Term Evolution networks will support in the future, the I-HSPA will only make mobile phone broadband faster than ever. We still need to wait and watch how soon the service providers start embracing the I-HSPA technology.
