The tech behind this is called Long Term HSPA Evolution and should be ready for a commercial roll-out by 2013. In order to boost the download speeds to this peak, both companies suggested combining up to eight channels into one data link and in that process are able to provide peak data rates of up to 672Mbit/sec.
