We kind of wish their
American counterparts would follow their lead (as usual), but today at Deutsche Telekom's 15th Internationales Presse
Kolloquium, DT's wireless division (a little company called T-Mobile, you may have heard of them?) announced they're
going to be introducing HSDPA into their domestic (i.e. German) networks at up to 1.8Mbps. Apparently their official
launchwill be at CeBIT this year;they also introduced a €35 (about $40 US) or a Euro a day flat data rate, but
it'll only apply to UMTS coverage, so don't plan on getting off that easily when it comes time to belly up to the bar
for your HSDPA when you're kicking back in Berlin.
