Ministry working on faster internet with private sector

Korea is pushing to commercialize 10-gigabit transfer speeds that are 10 times faster than Giga Internet, the fastest broadband service currently available in the country, the Ministry of Science and ICT said Sunday.

The ministry would work closely with local IT companies to adopt 10-gigabit service, considered the core technology behind 5G wireless technology, virtual reality and augmented reality. Under the plan, the ministry plans to form a consortium to develop basic equipment and prepare networks for the rapid commercialization of 10-gigabit speeds.

“The ministry hopes to achieve competitiveness in the ICT industry by commercializing 10-gigabit internet through close cooperation between public and private sectors,” a ministry official said.
