We are HSPA+ ready!

At least 2 of the 3G networks in this country are HSPA+ ready.

According to Wikipedia, “HSPA+ provides HSPA data rates up to 56 Mbit/s on the downlink and 22 Mbit/s on the uplink with MIMO technologies and higher order modulation (64QAM)

Telcos just need to perform a simple software upgrade to enable HSPA+. Of course before doing that, they need to spend at least a few million to upgrade backend/backhaul and also bring in HSPA+ supported devices.

If you ask me when will this happen? Probably end of next year.
