Vodafone is looking to introduce HSUPA technology to increase the speed of its 3G broadband service and enable it to compete better with rival Isps, it has been reported.

The move will also boost the performance of its current HSDPA, according to a report from isppreview.

Vodafone is aiming through the adoption of the technology to increase the speed of the mobile broadband service by as much as 7.2 Mbps downstream and 1.44Mbps upstream.

It is thought that the rollout process will follow a similar pattern to that adopted by Three, with cities and major airports being equipped first before the service is taken nationwide.

News of the move comes as Three recently confirmed it is increasing the speed of its 3G mobile broadband. The company is also rumoured to be set to launch packages from as little as £10 per month – making mobile broadband more accessible than ever before.

However, Vodafone did not announce plans to cut its tariffs.
