UMTS

Universal Mobile Telecommunications System.

A third generation (3G) mobile communications technology that promises data transmission speeds of up to 2 megabits per second (Mbps), although actual speeds may be significantly lower at first, due to network capacity restrictions.

UMTS uses WCDMA technology, and the two terms are often used interchangeably with each other.

See: WCDMA
