    Default 3G iPhone to support 42Mbps Evolved HSPA data?

    Interesting. We know that Telstra's Next G HSDPA network has been capable of 14.4Mbps since 2007. At GSMA Mobile World Congress, they even committed to 21Mbps before the end of the year and 42Mbps using HSPA+ (aka, Evolved HSPA, HSPA Evolution) technology in 2009... not Christmas of 2008. Hard to say if this is just industry blow-harding or actual insider info. June 9th: T-minus 17 days and counting.

    42Mbps? I barley use my 10mbps from my ISP, thats insane... If its 42mbps, imagine the darn data bill, must be in the hundreds . Still, who is going to need 42MBPS of data transfer? Must have video calling and mobile TV just from reading that if it does have the 42mbps transfer. Scary :S
