Technorati Tags: ,,

 

After launching ‘Home Zone’, the world’s first commercial 3G femtocell service, it seems that Starhub is not stopping even though the economy is not in good shape.

StarHub today announced that the company, together with its partner Huawei, has commenced the upgrade of its mobile broadband network to HSPA Plus (HSPA+), following a successful live demonstration of its capability to deliver 21Mbps on the downlink. This is 1.5 times higher than its current network capacity of 14.4Mbps.

This development is in addition to StarHub’s increased uplink network capacity to 5.76Mbps nationwide.

By 2Q-2009, StarHub’s mobile broadband network will be HSPA+ ready for commercial rollout nationwide.

Today, StarHub continues to boast the highest mobile broadband network capacity in Singapore, at 14.4Mbps (downlink) and 5.76Mbps (uplink).

 

What is HSPA?

HSPA, which stands for High Speed Packet Access, is an evolution of the mobile technology from 2G to 3G to 3.5G.

HSPA_diagramWhen you see/hear about mobile broadband speeds 3.6 or 7.2Mbps they are referring to these theoretical maximum speeds. This is because factors like the distance between the user and the mobile mast, trees and other buildings as well as the number of users can all affect the speed experienced.

 

Factors affecting mobile broadband speed

The mobile broadband speeds experienced is affected by various factors including:

  • Signal strength
  • Distance from base station
  • Interference and building clutter
  • Hardware: computer processing speed & power supply
  • Software: operating system and simultaneous usage of multiple applications
  • Websites (Local/Overseas)
    • The web server speed of the website you are visiting. i.e. how fast the network can receive data depends on how fast the web server can send them out .

Way to go StarHub!

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult
    time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if
    it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with
    someone!

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to tell someone!
