A senior figure at T-Mobile has hinted that the mobile broadband provider could soon be offering 14.4Mb connections.
Speaking to ZDNet UK technical director, Emin Gurdenli, has suggested that work could soon be carried out to upgrade the provider's UK 3G broadband network to offers the quicker download speeds.
The news follows rival 3's plans to also offer the maximum 14.4Mb connection speed for HSPA.
A 3 spokesperson said at the time: "The appetite for data is huge, so we have to have a sufficiently deep network, with the right amount of density and backhaul, to cater for all customers."
Vodafone are another of the British internet service providers to be planning speed increases.
The operator recently reported successfully trialling a 20Mb service in southern Spain ahead of the Mobile World Congress.
