World's first LTE-Advanced network

SK Telecom launches the world's first LTE-Advanced network service.

SK Telecom said,

"LTE-Advanced service is based on carrier aggregation technology, which bundles two frequency bands to increase bandwidth. The network automatically chooses one of several frequency bands available based on data traffic at the user's location."

" LTE-Advanced network service  is 10 times faster than the old 3G network service."

"With the use of the LTE-Advanced network, an 800 megabyte file takes some 40 seconds to download, compared with 80 seconds with the existing LTE."

The mobile carrier said its LTE-Advanced service will be available in Seoul and other major cities during the third quarter of the year, and be expanded to other regions by the end of 2013.

 SK Telecom expects a flurry of LTE-Advanced-based smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices to emerge down the road.

   With the commercialization of the world's first LTE-Advanced network, Samsung Electronics Co., the largest smartphone maker, also released today the Galaxy S4 LTE-A, the world's first phone optimized to work on the country's LTE-A network.

   SK Telecom said it will vigorously expand its LTE-Advanced phone lineup by providing a total of seven different LTE-Advanced compatible smartphones in the second half of 2013.

LG Electronics Co., the world's third-largest smartphone maker, and its smaller local rival Pantech Co., are also set to soon release smartphones running on LTE-Advanced network.
