Super fast download speeds in Korea

Where else are you going to get extremely fast download speeds but in Korea? The Korean Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute has already the fourth-generation mobile communications technology which enables you to achieve data transmission rates of up to 3.6Gbps, theoratically. At this (peak) speed, you would be able to transfer a 4.7GB DVD in less than 10.5 seconds. Korea is the first country in the world to develop this transmission technology, placing it in pole position to kick off 4G mobile communications. One thing’s for sure though – there’s a big difference between theoratical speed and actual measured and commercialized speed. I wonder if latency is going to get better on mobile devices.
