NokiaNokia HSDPA network launched in Belgium :Belgian mobile operator Proximus has launched the first commercial High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) network in the country. With the Nokia HSDPA solution, Proximus will be able to operate its network more cost-efficiently and offer its customers data services at speeds of up to five times faster than current 3G speeds. "We at Proximus take pride in offering our customers the best quality services, so we are pleased to be the first operator in Belgium to upgrade our 3G network with HSDPA technology," says Laurent Claus, Executive Vice President, Proximus. "Nokia's rapid rollout capability and support are extremely valuable for us in offering 3G broadband HSDPA to our customers."

"We are delighted that Nokia's solutions and support helped Proximus to launch the first commercial HSDPA in Belgium," says Patrick Fichou, Account Director, Networks, Nokia. "The Nokia HSDPA allows Proximus to introduce 3G broadband to their existing and new customers thus enhancing subscriber loyalty and generating revenue." Nokia is Proximus' sole GSM and WCDMA 3G radio network supplier. Nokia also supplies GPRS and 3G packet core network equipment to the operator. Nokia has supplied mobile networks to Proximus since 1996 and was selected as its 3G supplier.

HSDPA network - Evolution
High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) is a new mobile telephony protocol and is sometimes referred to as a 3.5G (or "3½G") technology. In this respect it extends WCDMA in the same way that EV-DO extends CDMA2000. HSDPA provides a smooth evolutionary path for Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) networks allowing for higher data capacity (up to 14.4 Mbit/s in the downlink). It is an evolution of the WCDMA standard, designed to increase the available data rate by a factor of 5 or more.

Nokia HSDPA network - Communication
HSDPA defines a new WCDMA channel, the high-speed downlink shared channel (HS-DSCH) that operates in a different way from existing WCDMA channels, but is only used for downlink communication to the mobile. In WCDMA 3G, Nokia has 60 customers to date. Nokia's high-performing HSDPA is a simple software upgrade to Nokia WCDMA networks, thus enabling cost-effective and fast rollout. Nokia is a leader in the HSDPA market, with over 20 contracts globally. Several network operators have already opened their HSDPA networks with the Nokia solution.

About Proximus
On 31 March 2006 Proximus had 4,260,000 active customers* (43% postpaid and 57% prepaid customers). Proximus, the mobile telephony market leader in Belgium, is 75% owned by the Belgacom Group and 25% by Vodafone. Belgacom is listed on the Euronext Brussels First Market, under "BELG".
