Hanaro Telecom Inc. announced that the UbiNet Consortium started testing its satellite cable network yesterday. The service allows subscribers to get broadcasts from satellite TV networks and high-speed Internet connections with only one network cable ― no satellite dish is necessary. Led by Hanaro Telecom and SK Telecom Co., the UbiNet Consortium is one of four consortiums taking part in a broadband convergence network pilot project overseen by the Ministry of Information and Communication. The project is designed to provide much faster data transmission than regular high-speed Internet connections, enabling higher quality broadcasting, video on demand and phone calls. “The satellite cable service is a starting stage of the broadband convergence network era,” said an official at SK Telecom. During the trial period, Hanaro Telecom is offering the service free to 50 subscribers in Seongbuk-dong, northern Seoul. They can watch Skylife, a satellite broadcaster, and enjoy high-speed Internet service. by Park Sung-ha
