Ericsson today announced that it has completed three different trials that it says are the first to achieve new records for HSPA (high-speed packet access). Using multi-carrier HSPA, Ericsson reached 168Mbps on the downlink and 24Mbps on the uplink using prototype consumer equipment and commercial network equipment. Using dual-carrier HSPA (two 5MHz channels), Ericsson hit 84Mbps on the downlink with commercial network products. Using single-carrier HSPA (one 5MHz channel), Ericsson reached 42Mbps using commercial products and a consumer device. All speeds are theoretical maximums, end-user speeds will be slower and vary upon a number of conditions. Ericsson says network operators will start to deploy its single-carrier 42Mbps and dual-carrier 84Mbps technologies this year. In the U.S., T-Mobile has said that it plans to upgrade is HSPA+ network from 21Mbps to 42Mbps this year.
