Vodafone is set to begin trials of the next-generation of mobile networks, HSDPA (High Speed Download Packet Access), some time in the beginning of next year with a commercial rollout in the middle of the year. HSDPA is expected to deliver a peak wireless download speed of 1.6Mbit/s, increasing to 7Mbit/s over time. Initially, however, most customers will receive closer to 425Kbit/s.
