Korean Carrier To Launch 300Mbps Broadband Speed Network This Year

SK Telecom
Residents in South Korea will soon enjoy 300Mbps wireless on the nation’s largest carrier, SK Telecom.

The Korean carrier is using so-called LTE-Advanced 3-band carrier aggregation tech, which combines one 20MHz and two 10MHz bands. The proverbial 800MB movie would be downloaded in 22 seconds, though, the new format will have to be standardized globally and adopted by smartphone and chip makers, a process SK said is underway. The new wireless service comes on the heels of a similar effort by CSL in Hong Kong, which achieved the same speed by combining two 20MHz LTE bands.
