HTC Inspire 4G to Get HSUPA Speeds Soon

March 26, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

A recent filing spotted at FCC, makes us expect a software update to be pushed to the HTC Inspire 4G. The device is being marketed as a perfect 4G device on AT&T, but had hitherto no access to AT&T’s 4G network. With the imminent software update, it is likely to change.

Though, either HTC or AT&T are yet to confirm this officially, a letter filed at FCC from HTC, shows that the phone maker wants to enable HSUPA functionality in one of their products which had already got FCC approval in last December. The FCC ID mentioned in the letter matches the ID of Inspire 4G when it went for FCC approval earlier.

HSUPA functionality, if enabled, will give a jump to the users in the up linking speed. The High-Speed Uplink Packet Access protocol, offers uplink speeds up to 5.76 Mbps. It seems the time taken by HTC to test the HSUPA on Inspire has delayed the device getting the 4G capabilities.

They had filed the Class II Change letter to FCC way back on March 8th itself. However, it took until March 23rd for them to submit the test reports.

Though delayed, the test reports show hopeful results. They show approval for HSUPA and HSUPA+ on WCDMA bands II and V. So wait for imminent software update which will take you to the high speed wireless networks of the 4th generation.
