From the article: "The feature makes far more efficient use of
network resources, delivering up to double the data speed and up to 50% faster response compared to existing HSPA+ networks." And: "...it reduces imbalances that typically occur in network resource usage, and increases HSPA+ speed and capacity.”
Yes, now go back and read the article again. Note that it states "cell edge" at least three times. I stress again that Multiflow appears to be a soft handoff technique. It can improve data rates at cell edge, where C/I ratio is generally lowest. However, because data has to be backhauled to a second cell site, Multiflow may actually reduce capacity for other users.
Trust me. I know airlink technology, while you most likely do not. You are merely regurgitating a press release.
