The company said that it had achieved the results during trials on Vodafone Spain’s network. It has revealed it now plans to trial mobile broadband date connections of speeds up to 21Mbps in early 2009 using HSPA+ MIMO functionality. The mobile group estimates that the technology is capable of providing an average speed of more than 4Mbps over a range of locations, including urban areas. If successful it is expected that Vodafone will make the technology available on some of its networks.
