    How can it download at up to 7.2mbps, when the maximum speed of the
    network is 1.8mbps (hsdpa)?
    Is it something to do with the modem technology?
    Can anyone elucidate?
    TIA

    HSDPA has a roadmap of speed increases, 1.8 > 3.6 > 7.2. I believe vodoofone
    may have switched on some 7.2 kit in some *very* central bits of London.

    Out of interest my boss has a USB modem from 3 and gets 3.6 round the
    Blackpool area. He says its works brilliantly.
