In an effort to prove that they have the best wireless network in the world Telstra has thrown the gauntlet down to the Federal government by rolling out turbo charged wireless broadband with 7.2 download speeds bursting up to 6Mbps. It also has super fast upload speeds up to 1.9MPs.

At press functions in Sydney and right in fronmt of parliament house in Canberra Telstra used skydivers to deliver maps that show that the new service covers 98.8% of Australia. To get a
access to the new 7.2 download service existing customers can get a software upgrade for their existing wireless hardware. But for the faster upload speeds one has to buy a new Sierra Wireless AirCard which is approximetly $50 more expensive than current Next G cards.     

 

With the Sierra Wireless AirCard 880U USB modem and AirCard 880E ExpressCard operating on Telstra’s Next G HSPA network, customers will be able to send email attachments, upload information, and transmit data at peak network speeds up to 1.9 megabits per second (Mbps) – significantly faster than was possible with earlier network technologies. This improvement in uplink speed, combined with peak network downlink speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps, allows for new applications such as web conferencing and live video, and significantly improves the user experience for customers working over a virtual private network.

Telstra will market the Sierra Wireless AirCard 880E as the Telstra Turbo 7 Series Express Card and BigPond Wireless Broadband 7.2 Mobile Card. The Sierra Wireless AirCard 880U will be marketed as the Telstra Turbo 7 Series Modem and BigPond Wireless Broadband USB Mobile Card.

Telstra’s Next network upgrade will also benefit customers operating an AirCard 875 PC card, which can be upgraded to take advantage of the increased downlink speed with a simple firmware update.

“The move to HSPA technology offers great benefits for mobile data customers, who will find that the significantly improved upload speed available makes sending large email attachments, for example, to be much faster,” said Dan Schieler, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales for Sierra Wireless. “Telstra has shown extraordinary market leadership in quickly transitioning to new wireless technology, and we are pleased to support its deployment of HSPA and to continue to improve the mobile broadband experience for customers in Australia.”

 

Holly Kramer, Group Managing Director, Telstra Product Management said, “Telstra is pleased to be partnering with Sierra Wireless to launch the first 7.2 data cards in the Australian market, bringing the benefits of the fastest national mobile broadband network to 98.8 percent of the Australian population.”

The AirCard 880U USB modem and the AirCard 880E ExpressCard are fully compatible with HSPA, UMTS, EDGE, GPRS, and GSM network technologies on all frequencies currently used worldwide. To ensure there is always enough power support to handle peak or fringe area transmission requirements without compromising performance, the AirCard 880U USB modem includes an internal battery that supplements the power from the USB port when extra power is required.
