Austrailia telecommunication giant Telstra has announced plans to roll out the world;s fastest wireless broadband network says News.com.au.
Chief executive Sol Trujillo said that the company will be upping the speed of its Next G network to 21 Mbps for business customers starting next week and should be available to customers in April. He also said the company plans to increase speeds to 42 Mbps in late 2009 and 2010. The catch appears to be that handsets won't be available to take advantage of the increased speeds until later in the year.
A faster network increases the products and services that Telstra can offer its customers, and also allows Telstra to handle traffic on its network more efficiently, a benefit to the company even if users don't upgrade.
You have to show leadership and that's what we have been doing by changing this whole game around what a real high-speed wireless broadband world looks like.
