Mobile broadband services offering speeds of up to 56Mb could be available from 2010, according to a leading telecommunications firm.

Huawei has announced it is developing a new system based on high-speed packet access (HSPA+) technology that can support such speeds, which in turn could have a major impact on the quality of connections available through mobile services across the globe.

The upgrade will use multiple-input-multiple-output technology to improve data throughput to the necessary level.

Wan Baio, president of wireless at Huawei, said: "This 56Mb HSPA+ solution will enable operators to maintain their industry leading positions and provide consumers with an evermore attractive mobile broadband experience."

The news could be a major boost to the mobile broadband sector, after recent research suggested that speeds available through such services in the UK were below the levels stated on advertising.
