Does HSPA compatibility include HSDPA compatibility?

Hey there, as I'm about to buy a new phone and read about koodo using HSPA 850/1900, I was wondering if that includes HSDPA 850/1900 too? What is the difference between those two? Thank you

For the purpose of using a phone on the Koodo network: HSPA HSPA+ HSDPA WCDMA UMTS Are basically all the same thing

Here is a link pertaining to the frequencies that Koodo uses, but when it comes to HSPA and HSPA they are essentially the same except for data speeds that come from them. Hope this helps 🙂 https://c.getsatisfaction.com/koodo/topics/the_big_three_canadian_network_frequencies
