Broadband - that's the right speed

Current broadband connection speed in Korea is 10 Mbps which is fast in comparison to many other countries. This is one of the reasons that EBay's Meg called the country a testbed for broadband and why it is expected that Korea will overtake the US in digital supremacy. Korea's aim is to increase Internet speed by 50 times by 2010, and the country just did a major step into the direction. "Powercomm has ventured into Korea¡¯s broadband market by launching this month a blazingly fast Internet service with a speed of 100 megabits per second (Mbps)." To illuminate: this means that a two-hour high-definition video file in less than 5 minutes. While the speed decreases to 70 MPS when the broadband pipe is used by many surfers at once, this is still fast!
