As 3G looms, True bolsters wired service

Fixed-line broadband getting a speed boost

- +

True Corporation is boosting the speed of its fixed-line broadband to make it 10 times faster than mobile broadband in anticipation of stiff competition from third-generation (3G) commercial wireless service starting next month. 

The company, through its broadband arm True Online, will raise its broadband speed by 30% by June to deal with the arrival of 3G wireless broadband on the 2.1-gigahertz frequency.
