T-Mobile to turn on HSUPA

T-Mobile will on Tuesday turn on its fast uplink mobile broadband service, claiming it is the first UK operator to do so on a nationwide basis.

High-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA), also known as 'super-3G', is already commonly rolled out across the UK, but its counterpart — high-speed uplink packet access (HSUPA) — has only recently been appearing, and on a limited basis. HSUPA will be crucial for those who want to upload content to the web from their phones or laptops, rather than simply downloading it.

T-Mobile UK chief executive Jim Hyde said on Monday that the operator was addressing "the growing passion for sharing photos and videos on social-networking sites". T-Mobile has also upgraded its HSDPA speed to a theoretical maximum of 7.2Mbps, or up to 4.5Mbps in the real world. The HSUPA link promises uplink speeds of up to 1.4Mbps.

As far as I know, the Diamond is currently the only device to support HSUPA... however it will be interesting to hear who is the first on the site to report HSUPA upload speeds! Come over and discuss the news on Mobiholics!

Anyone connected via HSUPA yet? Does anyone know if we need to enable anything, get T-Mobile to do something to our account, etc?

Found it myself. In registry go to:

HKLM\Software\HTC\AdvancedNetwork and change the key "SupportHSUPA" from 0 to 1.

Then go to Settings > Connections > Advanced network. You will see that this has changed from a simple tick box, to a full drop down. In the drop down, set to "Enable HSDPA/HSUPA".

Havent actually connected to any HSUPA yet here in Birmingham UK, but here is hoping that others will!

Hmm, i had that option in my settings already. Enabled it and tethering stopped working! I could browse perfectly ok on the device though. Odd!

The increase to 7.2 is currently only arround the M25 area, expansion accross the UK is to take place over the summer.

The date for enabling HSUPA is no co-incidence, Monday is when the Compact IV will be released.

Come on over to the West Midlands...much better :-) (and 3G is better along with HSDPA)

From the specs for the Touch Diamond on the HTC website (http://www.htc.com/www/product.aspx?id=46286):

Up to 384 kbps up-link and 7.2 Mbps down-link speeds

Doesn't read like HSUPA.

However the Touch Pro specs (http://www.htc.com/www/product.aspx?id=49524):

Up to 2 Mbps up-link and 7.2 Mbps down-link speeds.

So maybe you'll need a Touch Pro to get the fast upload speeds.
