Orange Improves Northern 3G Mobile Broadband Network

Posted: 05th Aug, 2008 By: MarkJ
Orange has announced that it intends to improve its 3G network across Scotland, Northern Ireland and North-East England. The enhancements will bring faster and even more reliable voice and data services to the different locations, including HSPA (HSDPA) Mobile Broadband products.

The operator is working towards its 3G/HSDPA network speed targets of up to 7.2Mbps in the top 30 UK cities; 2Mbps for 80% of entire UK population and will start rolling out a staggering 14.4Mbps by the end of 2009; this is the peak of standard HSPA based performance:

“A robust and reliable network is at the heart of everything we do at Orange and we are dedicated to ensuring our customers in each and every region of the UK feel the benefit of this. We are investing heavily to improve our network and this investment is one step closer to our goal of becoming the best UK network for coverage and reliability by 2009,” said Peter Marsden, vice president IT & Networks.

Orange is currently investing over £1m every working day to develop its network and will be installing over 450 new 2G and 3G sites during the next 12 months. Hopefully it's land-line broadband network will get some love too, it's certainly needed.
