No, this is what Multiflow really means...

These comments seem to contain much incorrect speculation or outright misinterpretation as to what Multiflow will do.

One, Multiflow will not double capacity. It appears to be a soft handoff scheme for HSPA+ data. It will improve data rates near cell edges where interference between cells normally limits possible data speeds.

Two, Multiflow will not affect dropped calls. Calls do not utilize HSPA+ enhancements; calls travel over standard W-CDMA, which can already utilize soft handoff.
