Now Giga Internet Service available from all the Korean Big 3 Operators
12/18/2014 | By NETMANIAS (tech@netmanias.com)

The 'giga Internet era' has just begun, finally offering speeds of 1 Gbps - 10 times faster than the 100Mbps. For the past 7 ~ 8 years, the maximum Internet speeds for all access networks (FTTH, LAN and XDSL) have long been 100Mbps. So, when LTE-A (CA: 150Mbps) was launched in 2013, and when Wideband LTE-A (225Mbps) was released in June 2014, it was shameful for the wired Internet to be helplessly outpaced by the wireless Internet.

 

Last May, the newly appointed Chairman Chang-gyu Hwang of KT presented a vision of ‘GiGAtopia’ aimed to drastically accelerate wired/wireless access from 100Mbps up to 1Gbps. On Oct. 20, KT, as the first step of realizing the vision, commercialized the nation's first giga Internet service, soon followed by its competitors, SK and LG U+, in Oct. 30 and Nov. 30, respectively.
