Turbo 3G: High-Speed Packet Access Arrives
Mobile broadband has the potential to be the next major growth area for mobile operators as they start to compete with public wireless LAN and residential broadband access services. But to deliver a competitive price per bit and scoop a mobility premium, operators will require radio access systems vastly more efficient than today's 3G UMTS cellular networks.

HSDPA (high-speed downlink packet access) and HSUPA (high-speed uplink packet access) are the first steps down this road for UMTS-based 3G systems. This report analyzes the implementation of HSPA in mobile networks worldwide and assesses the impact of this disruptive technology on the mobile infrastructure market.

Sample research data from the report is shown in the excerpts below:
Table of Contents (uni1005_toc.pdf)
The evolution of 3G through HSPA is focused on more efficient delivery of mobile data services. The chart below shows how mobile data could contribute to ARPU growth. The left column shows the average ARPU of 12 Western European operators (about 30 per month) in the second quarter of 2005. The right column shows potential ARPU evolution with the introduction of mobile broadband services.

Mobile operators are pushing for deployment of HSDPA at widely differing rates, depending on factors such as their competitive environment, their target service mix, their historical service mix, and the overall progress of their 3G network deployment. The following chart shows a selection of deployments and trials.
