Ericsson has signed a high-speed packet access (HSPA) network expansion contract with Taiwanese operator Far EasTone Telecommunications. The move will give Far EasTone the highest HSPA penetration in Taiwanup to 95 percent of the populationand allow subscribers to enjoy the fast mobile broadband speeds.

Under the agreement, Ericsson will enhance HSPA coverage and help Far EasTone expand its transmission network capacity and to enhance its mobile positioning service solutions. Ericsson will also be responsible for spare parts management service as well as support services. Network deployment and integration have started.

In addition, Ericsson's backhaul solution will help Far EasTone to increase cost-efficiently its transmission network capacity, allowing better HSPA service quality and overall network performance. Ericsson's enhanced positioning solution, Assisted GPS, offers faster and more accurate positioning servicesat a lower power-consumption levelfrom almost anywhere within base station coverage. This will be a significant benefit to users in urban areas, especially when indoors or surrounded by tall buildings.

Stefan Johansson, president of Ericsson Taiwan, commented, "Following the partnership in launching 3G, HSPA and high-speed mobile broadband services, the expansion contract signals another proof point of customer recognition of Ericsson HSPA technologies. It also emphasizes our commitment to help Far EasTone build a full service broadband network, and meet growing customer demand."
