Surfing on the move or working efficiently: more and more people are taking advantage of the benefits of mobile data communication. The rapidly growing volume of data traffic means that the network needs to expand continuously. Right in time for the ITU Telecom World 2009 in Geneva, Swisscom is rolling out HSPA+, the latest technology for mobile data traffic. HSPA+ allows far more people to surf the net simultaneously from the same radio cell without any loss in speed.
Swisscom will commence its HSPA+ rollout at the Geneva exhibition site at the launch of the world's largest telecommunications exhibition, which is taking place in the Swiss city on 5 - 9 October 2009. Thereafter, further locations across Switzerland where high volumes of customers regularly access the mobile Internet will be added. It is anticipated that the first terminal devices capable of utilising the higher bandwidth will appear on the market over the coming year.
