Samsung Galaxy S III supports 42Mbps data

Samsung Galaxy S III supports 42Mbps dataThe Samsung Galaxy S III hits shelves one week tomorrow (or one week today, for some), and Sammo has confirmed a cheeky bonus feature ahead of release.

Apparently the Samsung Galaxy S III will support DC-HSPA, which means – in theory – data speeds of up to 42Mbps.

It was revealed last week that O2 in particular had begun rolling out 42Mbps DC-HSPA to unspecified “major cities”.

Vodafone also offers DC-HSPA for some, however it has a slightly lower maximum speed of 28.8Mbps. Incidentally, Big Red will have an exclusive on the 32GB Samsung Galaxy S III for the first month.

Three has announced that it’ll roll out 4G in the summer, however it’s 42Mbps HSPA+ as opposed to proper LTE 4G (shades of T-Mobile in the States). Everything Everywhere hopes to follow later in the year.

Joining the Samsung Galaxy S III in the DC-HSPA ranks are the new iPad (which recently ditched its controversial 4G claims in some countries), and the Nokia Lumia 900.

I think this article is wrong. As far as i'm aware the UK version won't support DC-HSPA+

I've yet to see over 4Mbps anywhere.

In central London I managed an amazing 0.5Mbps :P
