An article on reports that the number of HSDPA networks (known as 3G Broadband) has now topped 100. That’s either commercially available or in deployment. 

This new survey confirms that 30 HSDPA networks have commercially launched services in 23 countries/territories, delivering the full broadband experience to subscribers.
