[The Chosun Ilbo, June 15 2007] KTF Launches Faster Upload Service for Mobiles

Sending photos and video clips on a cell phone will be 15 times faster now. KTF, the nation's second-largest mobile operator, said Thursday it launched a new service in Seoul, Busan and Daejeon. The 3.5-generation high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) technology ensures download of data at a speed of 14.4 Mbps, but is slow in sending data: that is where the advanced HSUPA (for “uplink”) technology now introduced comes in. It sends data at the speed of 5.76 Mbps, 15 times faster than the HSDPA technology, still guaranteeing the same speed as its predecessor in receiving data.
