In 1999 UMTS became the first standard to incorporate turbo codes after their invention in 1993. It offers throughputs of 384 kbit/s, which is much more compared to what GSM-based 2G networks can provide. UMTS was later extended to support higher throughputs for downlink (HSDPA) and uplink (HSUPA), commonly referred to as HSPA. Another evolution (Evolved HSPA or HSPA+) increases the data rates even further.
UMTS and its evolutions apply the same kind of turbo codes.
