South Korea to introduce 1GBPS broadband

September 18th, 2006 · No Comments

South Korea has developed the technology to deliver commercial broadband speeds of one gigabit per second (Gbps) within a year. Currently, only a maximum of 16 customers can subscribe to a 1Gbps service on a single optical fiber line, but with so-called fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) technology, this increases the number of users to 512 per cable, said the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI).
At the recent Fourth-Generation (4G) Forum, Samsung also demonstrated a new wireless platform which enables a downlink speed of 1Gbps when standing still and 100 Mbps for those on the move.
The company says the technology, which would transform the quality of video delivered to mobile devices, could be available by 2010. The company will introduce its the first 4G phones in 2008.
