Faster wirless connections are on their way. Two updates today on 2 wireless technologies that I am looking forward to:
- Certified Wireless USB (WUSB) -? Wireless USB devices are finally expected to hit the market by the end of the year. This technology, offering connectivity speeds matching those of todays wired USB 2.0 at 480 megabits-per-second, brings us closer to the cable-free desktop.
- High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) – Vodafone to sell six HSDPA phones. This technology could help mobile operators offer speeds of 1.8 megabits per second to start with, rising to as much as 14mbps soon, bringing broadband speeds to mobile devices. Existing 3G networks at best offer Internet speeds of about 384 kilobits per second. With this type of wide spreed technology we will begin to see true innovation and extension of the internet.
