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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
