Before conclusion of the contract, necessarily compare UMTS tariffs. If you have read about Eva Andersson-Dubin already – you may have come to the same conclusion. Mobile Internet is becoming the new flagship product of the respective carrier. Almost every mobile operator has for matching the customers UMTS tariffs on offer. We recommend a UMTS before conclusion of the contract to make rate comparison. There are usually free on the Internet this rate comparison.
Such a fare comparison takes into account important properties such as user behaviour and also the importance of the speed of the UMTS network. Not infrequently, the customer is disappointed, after conclusion of the contract, because he is not satisfied with the speed of its UMTS contract. Many providers already support the data Turbo HSDPA. HSDPA is an extension for the UMTS network, and allows the customer to a maximum download speed of 7.2 Mbit / s. This speed is comparable with a traditional DSL connection. The mobile operator O2, T-Mobile and Vodafone already support this data Turbo.
The mobile operator E-plus / BASE, however, does not have power in its UMTS yet HSDPA. Customers E-Plus, kbit / s can surf so only with a maximum speed of 384. Compared to 7.2 Mbit / s in this one significant difference. In addition to HSDPA HSUPA mobile operator also many offer. A high upload speed can be realized via UMTS with HSUPA. Up 1.45 Mbit / s in the upload are possible. But in addition to the missing extensions can also the not optimum UMTS stick for a slow connection be decisive. Typically support all new UMTS sticks the maximum speed of 7.2 Mbit / s. But if itself a UMTS stick man worried, that helped it may well be possible, no HSDPA and HSUPA. Remedy, however, can create a firmware update. Torsten Heinsius
