Maxis upgrades 3G to HSUPA

Maxis announced its successful implementation of High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) technology in a live network.

In a statement, it said HSUPA will enable a three-fold improvement in uplink data speeds, up to 1.4Mbps compared with 384kbps previously.

“We see this significant wireless broadband coverage expansion and introduction of HSUPA as key factors in differentiating us from other 3G and wireless broadband operators,” said chief executive officer Jon Eddy Abdullah.

He said HSUPA will improve the performance of applications which require faster uplink such as e-mails and photo sharing.

This HSUPA data transmission and planned rollout are made possible through strong collaboration with Ericsson, Maxis’s key 3G network supplier.

Ericsson Malaysia’s president and country manager Krishna Kumar said with future network upgrades and more advanced devices, the HSUPA will be able to support upload peak speeds higher than 5Mbps.-Bernama
