Japan's old PHS (Personal Handy-phone System) mobile phone technology is back with a vengeance. Recent upgrades to the twenty-year old technology promises connections of up to 43Mbps. That's way way faster than current HSDPA technologies from our local telcos (Globe, Sun and Smart).
The XGP (eXtended Global Platform) is an extension of the existing PHS that uses networks of micro cells that are much closer together than standard mobile phone towers. The result is better call quality and that impressive data throughput.
39 firms, including Hitatchi, NEC and Toshiba, have already formed the XGP forum with a goal to let the whole world know about this Asian technology.
