HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) is like having your home cable broadband experience delivered to your mobile phone or notebook.

HSPA is part of the GSM 3G network and is (predominately) a software upgrade of the network infrastructure. To use the high speed variant, you need a mobile device that is HSPA-enabled - most new mobile phones and high-end notebooks have these as standard. For a full list of HSPA devices, click here.

HSPA has a great legacy, coming from the GSM family, which delivers mobile communications to over a third of the worlds population. It is the latest technology to enable even faster data rates for mobile users available today. The evolution has seen familiar acroymns such as GPRS (the first packet technology giving around 128kb/s) to EDGE (an enhanced version offering around 240kb/s) and then the introduction of 3G networks increasing the data rate to 384kb/s.

The various enhancements on the HSPA route are as follows:

The term HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) is commonly used to refer to UMTS based 3G networks that support both HSDPA and HSUPA data for improved download and upload speeds. HSPA can also be used to refer to the entire family of related systems, which includes the upcoming HSPA+.
