HSDPA coming on September 12

VodafoneJust confirmed: September 12 is the day Vodafone will officially release the HSDPA upgrade for its UMTS-WCDMA network in NZ.

As mentioned here on Geekzone, Vodafone's currently trialling the network at 1.8Mbit/s in the main population centres, but the service will launch at up to 3.6Mbit/s downstream, and 384kbit/s upstream. Note that in order to get the faster 3.6Mbit/s speed, a new Class 6 device will be needed.

I thought New Zealand would beat the other Vodafone areas with HSDPA, but UK launched on June 22 already.

No news yet as to what devices will be available, but it's a safe bet they'll be a subset of what's available in Britain.
