Nokia, M1 claim HSUPA first

Finnish vendor Nokia and Singaporean cellco MobileOne (M1) on Monday claimed to have made the first High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) data call in Southeast Asia.

The call was made on a test network using a Nokia provided HSUPA-capable device.

The companies involved claim the trial delivered a connection from device to the 3G network reaching a data rate of 1.45Mbps, meaning “a typical 10MB video file transfer over the HSUPA network takes less than a minute to upload, as compared to a minimum of 3 minutes using today’s 3G speeds,” Nokia said.

“This was Nokia’s first HSUPA data call made with the Nokia Flexi WCDMA Base Station and a Nokia device in collaboration with an operator, and the quality of the call was excellent,” said Ricky Corker, vice president of networks for Nokia Asia Pacific.
