Today Ericsson and 3 Italia announced successful trials of enhanced HSPA technology that boosts upload speeds to 5.8Mbps, under optimal conditions. The improvement also reduces latency dramatically, which speeds up interacting with mobile web-based content. The two companies were able to reach those speeds using 3 Italia's commercial network. Increasing the uplink capabilities of cellular data networks will allow users to send content from their phones, such as email or MMS files, faster.

5.8mbps to the handset?

when they say 5.8mbps upload are they talking per hand set or like per tower? how does this work because that is effing fast if this is a per phone thing..

they are talking per handset. however, i see usefulness in a laptop connect card.

When will this be in the USA?

On both AT&T and T-Mobile.
it doesn't matter.. by the time it hits the market the speeds are dumbed down to what everyone else is getting.

I wanna say at&t testing their HSPA at 10.1mps... but go look at what their claimed speeds are now... 3.2 i think...
