World's first LTE-advanced network launched by SK Telecom

World's first LTE-advanced network launched by SK Telecom

Today, SK Telecom announced the launching of what could be the world's first LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) wireless network to be made available for the public.

The news is ripe following SK Telecom's decision two years ago to deploy the first LTE network in the country. For those who are new to LTE-A, it's a mobile communication standard that offers blazing fast speeds of up to 150 Mbps - roughly twice as fast as LTE.

It's reportedly fast, that an 800MB movie can be downloaded in just 43 seconds. SK Telecom hopes that the implementation will improve customer satisfaction in mobile Internet services, while increasing the use of faster video contents and other value added services.

With regards to pricing, SK Telecom says that its current LTE price plans will apply to the LTE-A service. This means that customers, South Koreans for that matter, can enjoy the speedy service without having to pay for extra cash.
