    you have probably heard of 3g phones
    these days, the attention is to a new generation of phones
    called hsdpa phones or 3.5g phones

    this new technology is to offer phones the speed of broadband
    so that you can not only surf the web with the greatest of speed
    but watch streaming tv, movies and videos as well
    - this is truly groundbreaking technology

    i have been selected to test drive this high speed hsdpa highway
    by m1, one of singapore's top 3 telcom company
    i have a blog going and posted my experiences there - pop down and have a look see :clap:

    HSDPA is very good. I have been using it on my Dell laptop for the last few months. Fast and quite reliable.

    £20pm foe 2gb transfer with T-Mobile.

    With the T-Mobile PCMCIA card (made by Option) I have got upto 1.8 mbps.

    With the Dell 5505 WLAN Card I can only seem to get a max of 1.1 mbps (The card is not officially supported by T-mobile as its meant to be used with Vodafone sims). But thats quick enough for me.
