With Nokia's HSDPA solution, Omnitel will be able to operate its network more cost-efficiently and offer its customers data services at speeds of up to four times faster than current 3G speeds.

"Thanks to our recently launched WCDMA 3G network that has been now upgraded to HSDPA, we can offer our customers the best quality services, such as high speed mobile Internet connection, " says Antanas Zabulis, CEO, Omnitel. "In today's event we are demonstrating the exceptional speed of HSDPA together with Nokia, whose WCDMA and HSDPA solutions and rapid deployment of the network have enabled us to offer this new service to our customers."

"This launch is an important milestone for Omnitel and Lithuania," says Jan Lindgren, Vice President, Networks, Nokia. "Nokia HSDPA is a cost-effective, high performance solution that helps operators tackle the challenges of providing high speed, quality services with optimized cost of delivery."

In addition to WCDMA 3G and HSDPA radio network, Nokia has delivered Omnitel Lithuania packet core network equipment, and will upgrade the operator's existing Nokia Mobile Switching Center (MSCi) to Nokia MSC Server mobile softswitch. Nokia will provide maintenance services, and the network will be supported by the unique, multitechnology Nokia NetAct(TM) network and service management system.
