Spanish mobile network operator Vodafone Spain has revealed that it is conducting tests of HSPA-based broadband services as a fixed broadband substitute in the town of San Quirze del Valles, near Barcelona.
Under the pilot scheme more than 100 households will be provided with HSPA 3G modems and Wi-Fi base stations with a view to using these instead of traditional ADSL-based high speed internet services. The trial will last for six months.

Vodafone has said that it has two main aims for the project: to ascertain the level of customer satisfaction with mobile broadband compared to traditional fixed line services, as well as studying both downlink and uplink speeds and download volumes; and to study the level of service and capacity its mobile network may need in order to offer such services in a medium-sized city.
