  • South Korea has led in mobile adoption since the 1990s.

    Now they are spending $1.5 billion on a "5G" net work to upgrade

    Koreas mobile infrastructure. The term is mostly a slogan for now,

    but the tech will come.

    The nation's science ministry's plan is realistically measured. A trial

    5G network is due to be rolled out in 2017, with full rollout in 2020.

    The worlds fastest Internet connection speed

    - measured at 23 Mbit/s

    - over 40% faster than the next ranked country

    - six times faster than the world average of 3.8 Mbit/s

    - more than twice as fast as the United States

    Cutting-edge technology in KOREA

    KakaoTalk is a free mobile Instant messaging

    application for smartphones with free text and

    free call features.

    It was launched in 2010 and currently has 140

    million users and is available in 15 languages,

    used in over 230 countries. The app is also used

    by 93% of smartphone owners in South Korea.

    "We helped fuel national growth with 2G services in the 1990s, 3G in the 2000s

    and 4G around 2010. Now it is time to take preemptive action to develop 5G,"

    the Korea's science ministry said.
