WiBro Launched

South Korea is the first place to launch WiBro. WiBro is based on Intel’s WiMax technology and provides commercial versions of long range wireless networking.

The service is offered by SK Telecom and KT Corp and they will be responsible right now for providing broadband signals across Seoul. The range is around 1Km and can keep a connection up to 74MPH. The service starts at $17 and will work on a service charge depending on what usage you intend to make of it. The pricing looks rather reasonable compared to regular wifi over here in the UK.
