Just a quickie to report yesterday's announcement that Mobilkom Austria is the first to commercially launch HSPA+. Press release from Ericsson here. Yet again Austria leads the way. Mind you, in such a competitive mobile broadband market Mobilkom needs every weapon it can get.
I've often been at pains to point out how what has happened in Austria is unlikely to be replicated exactly elsewhere in Europe. There are certain characteristics of the market that make it much more MBB-friendly. However, I think this technology arms race will likely be a feature of all markets.
