South Korea is considered the country with the fastest Internet in the world – this is the statistics. However, the local Internet provider SK Broadband began providing services for access to the network at speeds up to 2.5 Gbit / s using GPON technology. It is noted that one network cable is capable of transmitting data at speeds up to 52.5 Gbit / s, with its help it serves up to 128 subscribers.
The operator does not intend to stop and is going to provide access to the network at speeds of 5 and 10 Gbit / s by the end of the year. Now the company guarantees access speed of at least 50% of the declared.
Similar steps are planned by SK Broadband competitors.
As ZDNet writes , in 2019 the country will begin active development of 5G technology.
