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.

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.
