By the end of 2012, South Korea intends to connect every home in the country to the Internet at one gigabit per second. That would be a tenfold increase from the already blazing national standard and more than 200 times as fast as the average household setup in the United States. A lot of Koreans are early adopters and the govt is getting prepared for things like 3-D TV, Internet protocol TV, high-definition multimedia, gaming and videoconferencing, ultra-high-definition TV, cloud computing.
Japan has launched a satellite to improve bandwidth for its citizens. A telecom revolution is brewing again in the US.
And we are still grappling with a 2G scam and a 2 hour download for a 36 mb file….. we deserve our politicians!
