ZTE Corporation, a telecommunications equipment and network solutions provider, along with Cosmote, a mobile operator in Greece, today launched the world’s fastest 3G dual carrier HSPA+ USB modem in Greece.
According to the company, MF680 brings the speed of third generation (3G) data communications closer to the requirements of 4G networks (known as LTE), with download and upload speeds of up to 42Mbps and 5.76Mbps respectively.
The MF680 has been especially designed for HSPA+ networks, providing users with an extremely powerful mobile broadband experience. This stylish device allows Cosmote customers to enjoy high-speed mobile broadband wherever the network is ready.
The modem is equipped with a USB slider connector that can be easily adjusted and plugged into any USB interface and also supports a MicroSD card with data storage of up to 32 GB.
“ZTE’s MF680 offers consumers a much better experience by accessing COSMOTE’s high-speed mobile broadband network, combined with a stylish form factor and higher technology,” said Zhang Yadong, general manager of ZTE’s mobile broadband division.
This is the first time this new dual carrier HSPA+ mobile broadband device has been launched anywhere in the world, and it pushes WCDMA systems another step closer to the requirements of so-called 4G technologies.
