Telstra CEO, Sol Trujillo, has announced that network speeds will be super-charged to 21 Mbps in 2008, with further plans to double the figure to 42Mbps sometime in 2009.

Currently, next G customers are able to achieve speeds of up to 14.4 Mbps.

“We have an evolution roadmap with Ericsson which will deliver customers speeds of 21 Mbps in 2008 across our national Next G network - a world first - and 42 Mbps in 2009 using HSPA+ technology. Our partnership with Ericsson continues to break the speed barrier,” Trujillo said.

An anonymous official has told ChannelNews that the phone will "by Xmas" support the planned upgrade to the advanced HSPA+ wireless standard on Telstra's 3G network. This will help drive sales since network speeds will be faster than many fixed-line broadband services, the executive asserts.

AT&T's mobility chief Ralph de la Vega has said that their company's HSPA network will be improved from the theoretical peak downloads of 3.6 megabits per second to about 20 megabits per second in 2009.
