15 Feb 2016

South Korea’s LG Uplus has launched a fixed broadband service offering downlink speeds of up to 1Gbps, according to the Korea Herald. In addition, the service provides Wi-Fi connectivity at speeds of up to 867Mbps. Existing subscribers to the operator’s IPTV and smart home services – including U+TV G 4K UHD, U+TV G Woofer and Home CCTV Mom Car – are all expected to benefit from the faster connectivity, while also receiving discounts of up to KRW5,000 (USD4.10) if they subscribe to both their existing product and the new internet service, which costs KRW28,000 per month.

At launch coverage is limited to Seoul, though an unnamed LG Uplus official was cited as saying: ‘The company plans to make the 1Gbps Internet services available in every nook and corner of Korea by the end of this year.’
