No city list or timeline for rollout
On May 16, British mobile telecom carrier O2 announced that they are building out a DC-HSPA wireless network capable of 42Mbps wireless downloads in the UK's largest cities. Samsung has jumped on board the effort by announcing yesterday that the Samsung Galaxy S III would connect to the DC-HSPA network. The Galaxy S III is expected to launch in the UK on May 29.
DC-HSPA, the fastest version of 3G available, has max download speeds of 42Mbps. The third-generation iPad, Nokia Lumia 900, and HTC One X also can connect to DC-HSPA networks. O2 has not detailed which of the "major UK cities" they are planning to outfit.
