iPhone up to 42 Mbps in Australia? – Macitynet.it
iPhone at 42 Mbps? Dream or reality that it is such a phone is announced by Telstra, the leading Australian mobile operator. "By Christmas – we read in the article – we will have an iPhone capable of supporting speeds of 42 mbs which will make it faster than numerous broadband offers (via cable, ed) and the fastest iPhone on any network in the world".
Recall that the technical specifications roused for the new version of the iPhone arriving in June speak of a Infineon chipset capable of supporting "only" the 7.2 Mbps HSDPA standard and not suitable for the faster HSPA + technology, the one to which it makes reference to the alleged Telstra executive. Several non-secondary details raise more than one question about the Telstra executive's statements that are making the rounds of the Web.
First of all, Telstra is not among the mobile operators who have an agreement with Apple for the new iPhone 3G, perhaps also due to an incompatibility of the smartphone with the proprietary network. Secondly, no one has ever spoken before today of an iPhone or a cellular network with speeds up to 42 Mbps. The indication of the Christmas period, then, which would lead one to think not of the iPhone 3G now given for sure in the month of June, but to a new version of L to come and of which nobody has yet speculated the existence, this at least until today.
Finally, the thesis that Telstra would have seen the iPhone 3G also raises some substantial doubts. Recall that the managers of At & T, who had an exclusive agreement with Apple and that this agreement had entered into before any other operator in the world, saw iPhone live for the first time at the presentation of the Macworld.
