Korea’s number one mobile provider, SK Telecom, has announced an LTE advanced service with a speed of 225 megabits per second, three times faster than current LTE speeds. That means a 1-gigabyte movie can be downloaded to a smartphone in just 37 seconds.
Korea is already one of the fastest networks in the world. Other mobile carriers say they will follow SK's lead in the coming days. Samsung Electronics this week unveiled an upgraded model of its Galaxy S5 that is specifically optimized for the new LTE technology. LG and Pantech plan to do the same next month.
