South Korean carrier brings world’s fastest LTE to commercial use

The world's fastest Internet will theoretically, get even faster. South Korean telco KT Corp, which is the country's largest, has just announced that they will be commercializing their fastest mobile network, which will be called the Giga LTE. It uses the current LTE network, which is considered to be one of, if not the, fastest in the world and combines it with Wi-Fi connections. Now if only it would be available elsewhere, we would all be happy campers.

The Government has wrist-slapped SK Telecom, LG U+, and Korea Telecom, banning them for several weeks during and around the launch of the device. Oddly enough, banning them may prevent a repeat of their original offense.
