36Mbps Mobile Broadband at 430 km/h – very fast wireless coming to a SIM card near you soon


Journalists in Shanghai were recently given a graphic demonstration of the speed and robustness of the upcoming new LTE mobile broadband technology. The demo involved accessing the network at an average of 36Mbps while the train they were on was speeding along at 430 km/h (267 mph). Result, no drop outs. In fact the connection only glitched when another train passed, which is probably to be expected. Makes your pitiful 8 Mbps home broadband connection look a bit lame eh?


This is clearly very good news for high speed travellers waiting for fast mobile Internet. For the rest of us, it could mean an end to drop outs on a bicycle, right?

 Representatives from network and telecommunications equipment supplier Huawei last week demonstrated the company’s Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband running on the super-fast Maglev train in Shanghai.
