South Africa's Vodacom has announced the launch of its High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) service. The service will be commercially available countrywide with immediate effect, and is the first of its kind in South Africa.

"Vodacom continues to set the pace in wireless broadband technology in South Africa. With HSUPA, our customers will now have access to the fastest down- and upload speeds available, offering them a true broadband experience," said Alan Knott-Craig, Chief Executive Officer, Vodacom Group.

HSUPA is an enhancement of Vodacom's current HSDPA 3.6 service, which will offer users maximum upload speeds of up to 1.4 Mbps and download speeds of up to 3.6 Mbps, although the average achievable speeds are somewhat lower.

Vodacom's HSUPA service for a fixed fee of R49 per month. That's about 3.70 a month, using the current exchange rate.
