    Post South Korea wireless speed leaves U.S. service in the dust

    Wireless service providers in the United States are constantly battling each other over which has the largest or fastest wireless network. Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile are just big fish swimming in a small pond, though, because none of them can come close to what wireless providers are delivering in South KoreaŚnot even on their best day.

    In South Korea, LG Uplus is rolling out 300Mbps wireless service. Meanwhile SK Telecom will reportedly demonstrate 450Mbps wireless at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Those speeds are four to six times faster than the theoretical maximum speeds of U.S. wireless providers and 10 times faster or more than real-world speeds achieved by most US wireless customers...

    Korea is a very compact country so it should be easier to cover. But that's no excuse for not matching their speed in say, New York City.

    Might want to move to London

    The "fastest ever" broadband speeds have been achieved in a test in London, raising hopes of more efficient data transfer via existing infrastructure.

    Alcatel-Lucent and BT said speeds of 1.4 terabits per second were achieved during their joint test - enough to send 44 uncompressed HD films a second.

    The test was conducted on a 410km (255-mile) link between the BT Tower in central London and Ipswich.

    However, it may be many years before consumers notice any effect.
