SoftBank Announces New High-Speed Cellular Network

SoftBank Announces New High-Speed Cellular Network

SoftBank announced a new dual-carrier HSDPA network at a press conference held in Tokyo today. Named Ultra Speed, it has a theoretical download limit of 42Mb/s – just under six times faster than highspeed 3G – putting it in the same class as residential landline Internet connectivity, not to mention faster than NTT Docomo’s LTE, at 37.5Mb/s, and KDDI’s Win High Speed at a very, very snails’ pace of 9.2Mb/s. SoftBank are also promising a rollout to 60% population coverage by June 2011, way faster than Docomo’s LTE rollout – projected at 20% in March of 2012. As of today’s announcement, only two non-phone offerings – the 007Z Wi-Fi mobile router and the 005HW USB stick antenna – will be compatible with the new network, but the company promises more to come.
