Korea to get 1 gbps broadband speeds

Now when visiting Korea, you can enjoy downloading a full-feature 120 minutes length movie in around 12 seconds.

The super-speed broadband will be available in most, if not all, large cities but Koreans in rural towns can still get speeds of up to 50mbps to 100mbps, allowing them to still enjoy streaming media without any issues.

Internet users in South Korea soon may be able to download a movie in just two seconds, if a new high-speed Internet project moves forward as planned. South Korea plans to build a super broadband infrastructure with upload and download speeds of 1 Gbps by 2010. The project will cost about 24.5 billion dollars, and will largely be funded by the private sector.
