Huawei has upgraded MobileOne (M1)'s HSPA+ network to deliver Singapore's fastest mobile broadband download speed of up to 28Mbit/s in selected areas. The increased speed is achieved with the installation of multiple input multiple output (MIMO), making M1 HSPA+ network the first in the Asia Pacific to adopt this technology. MIMO will be rolled out to the entire network progressively.

"The HSPA+ network upgrade and deployment of MIMO are part of our ongoing efforts to provide our customers with an advanced and innovative high-speed mobile broadband network. We will continue to work with Huawei to implement state-of-the-art technology to ensure that our HSPA+ network remains one of the most modern and sophisticated networks in the region capable of offering our customers a rich suite of mobile data services," said Patrick Scodeller, chief technical officer of M1.

"Huawei highly values our strategic relationship with M1 and we are delighted to have been selected by M1 for the upgrade of its HSPA+ network," said Jeff Liu, President of Huawei South Pacific Region. "MIMO is an important feature of HSPA+ to provide customers with super high speed broadband experience. The successful upgrade of the HSPA+ network with MIMO highlights the innovation and leadership position of both our companies in the areas of mobile broadband services. We will continue to work together to grow and advance the telecommunications industry in Singapore."
