A South Korean company comes up with the world’s fastest wireless network. This fastest mobile internet is provided by SK Telecom which is the largest mobile operators in South Korea. They have successfully launched the world’s first consumer LTE-Advanced network. LTE-A network is the successor to the current generation LTE technology. The downloading speed of the LTE -Advanced network is ten times faster than 3G networks. The downloading speed of this new network is 150 mbps. Which means it takes only 43 seconds to download a movie of size 800 MB.
This network will be initially available at Seoul and its nearby regions. 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) have become widespread in South Korea. Around 60 % of the 33 million Smartphone users in South Korea have already subscribed to LTE service.
So far there were no phones that took advantage of the new speeds. SK Telecom has launched the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A which works in the new network. They have planned to launch seven devices that work in this network by the end of this year. Even though the downloading speed is more, the uploading speed of LTE-A is equivalent to that of LTE network which is one of its disadvantages.
