SK Telecom to Build 2nd-Gen WiBro Network
SK Telecom announced Thursday that it has succeeded in sending high-definition video using its WiBro technology in real time. Theoretically, WiBro with the improved "Wave 2" functionality can receive data at speeds of up to 37.44 Mbps and send at 10.08 Mbps.
That means a typical 700Mb movie file could be downloaded in a blazing two and a half minutes.
SK Telecom plans to build a Wibro Wave 2 network in Seoul, with an aim to launch service within the second half of this year at a price lower than the original wireless data service.
