It's easy to shrug off technical achievements like this while real-world data speeds still lag so far behind. Nevertheless, the adrenalin junkies at Nokia Siemens Services insist their latest HSPA+ platform will be commercially available to carriers by the end of next year and, to prove it actual

LTE? Who needs stinkin' LTE? The 3GPP's HSPA roadmap still has plenty of runway to get faster, interestingly -- enough runway, in fact, for just about any practical application you could throw at it shy of hosting Engadget's back-end operations. Historically, Australia's Telstra has had a track reco

Qualcomm's taking some pretty big baby steps with its HSPA+ testing by completing a data transfer test that reached 20Mbps. Sure, this isn't shattering records, but it is demonstrating a technology we may well see before LTE rolls our way at some point in the future. HSPA+, or HSPA Evolved, is tout
