    Telstra demos 21Mbps on Next G
    Friday, 07 November 2008

    Telstra this week gave the first demonstration of enhanced HSPA on its Next G network using a modem developed by Sierra Wireless capable of a maximum downstream speed of 21Mbps. Telstra is promising commercial services early in 2009.

    "According to Malcolm Thom, Sierra Wireless' country manager for Australia, Telstra's leadership in HSPA rollout is creating export opportunities for local companies. NetComm, in partnership with Sierra Wireless has developed a 3G WiFi router gateway for Telstra and has already announced trials and distribution agreements in a number of other countries."

    Thom said "I deal with a lot of small developers and the fact they have the Telstra network gives them a great head start. It gives them a six to 12 month lead on the rest of the world in taking that experience to the rest of the market. NetComm is just one of many such companies. Next G is a great proving ground for some of these companies."
