Egyptian mobile operator Etisalat Misr said it has launched the second phase of its HSPA+ network deployment.

The country's third mobile operator, which is working with Huawei on the project, said the deployment will give subscribers mobile broadband download speeds of up to 42Mbps, compared with 21Mbps speeds under the first phase of the network.

The service will be available to customers "in the coming few months on a wide scale", Etisalat Misr said in a statement.

Huawei rolled out its original HSPA+ network back in 2009, also with Huawei. The operator said that some 80% of the population of Egypt is now covered with its 3G network in cities, towns and villages.
