ZTE launches faster data card

The MF662 data card from ZTE supports download and upload rates of up to 21.6Mbps and 5.76Mbps, the company announced on Monday

ZTE's latest MF662 data card supports download and upload rates of up to 21.6Mbps (megabits per second) and 5.76Mbps respectively, the company announced on Monday.

The card is based on HSPA+ (High-Speed Packet Access), also known as Evolved HSPA or HSPA Evolved.

Besides higher speeds, the technology will also allow lower latency — improving, for example, online gaming performance.

The increased speed will also improve performance on services including mobile TV, downloading music, TV and film clips, and large-volume mail services, ZTE said in a statement.

The card measures 69x27x12mm. Pricing and availability for the card wasn't announced.

Operators including 3 Scandinavia, Telstra in Australia and StarHub in Singapore have all announced plans to launch services.

Vodafone has also expressed interest in the technology and has trialed the HSPA+ on its network in southern Spain and Madrid city center, it said on Monday, but announced no specific launch plans.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
