T-Mobile Launches 'Internet 4G' Service Powered by TD-CDMA from IPWireless

SAN BRUNO, Calif., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- T-Mobile launched commercial services of "Internet 4G" today, a super fast, next-generation wireless service that will allow subscribers to access the Internet, watch streaming video, download music, and transfer large files at broadband speeds with unprecedented ease. Powered by UMTS TD-CDMA technology from IPWireless, T-Mobile's Internet 4G service is fast enough to allow subscribers to replace their fixed line services, but is also mobile, allowing them to enjoy rich multimedia experiences wherever they are in the service area.

During the launch events for the new service over the coming week, T-Mobile will show the capabilities of Internet 4G to highlight the enhanced wireless experience that customers will enjoy. Video of the country's top- rated television show will be streamed smoothly for a broadcast-like viewing experience. Music will be downloaded from T-Music, T-Mobile's online music service. Enterprise collaboration tools that allow coworkers to hold videoconferences, share presentations, and hold online whiteboard sessions wherever they are will be demonstrated. T-Mobile will also demonstrate the "speed and latency difference" of Internet 4G over other wireless networks for web browsing, email, and online gaming.
"Internet 4G gives our subscribers full connectivity to work and play on the go, and provides a connection that's fast enough to replace the home fixed connection," said Roland Mahler, managing director, T-Mobile CZ. "With Internet 4G, we are confident that T-Mobile will strengthen its position as the No. 1 communications provider in the Czech Republic."
Services are available initially in Prague, expanding to other area of the country rapidly. Service plans start at 699 koruna (US$29) + VAT 19% for unlimited use at 512 Kbps and 999 koruna (US$41) + VAT 19% for 1 Mbps (speeds are not guaranteed). Subscribers will be able to use either the very small external modem or a PCMCIA card for laptop use, both of which can be set up by the subscriber in minutes.
T-Mobile's Internet 4G service is powered by UMTS TD-CDMA, the 3GPP standard broadband wireless technology designed for mobile operators. The T-Mobile network will utilize the 1900MHz spectrum that is specifically allocated for the technology and owned by GSM operators across Europe and parts of Asia. An ideal technology for mass market mobile broadband networks, the technology's very high downlink and uplink performance, low latency, high average sector capacity, strong cell edge performance, low cost per megabit, and support for a high number of simultaneous users, allows mobile operators to offer a range of differentiated mobile broadband services to both enterprise and consumer markets, and to maximize revenue on their networks.
