    Korean Researchers Successfully Demonstrate Advanced Version of LTE - 600Mbps!


    For those of us old enough to remember the 'dial-up' days, when upgrading to 56k was a big deal, the following info will seem both 'ridiculous' and a 'dream come true'. Korean researchers have successfully demonstrated a working version of 'LTE-Advanced' operating at a sustained 600 Mbps. The state-run Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) demonstrated an evolved Multimedia Broadcast and Multicast Service (eMBMS), that merges high-capacity and ultra-speed technology, that is approximately six times faster than an LTE network (up to 100 Mbps) or 40 times faster than a 3G network (up to 14.4 Mbps). To put it in perspective, this technology enables users to watch 3D TV videos in a moving car, or download 700 MB file in 9.3 seconds. For those few who need a quick computer refresher - (notice the difference between little 'b' and big 'B' there are 8 bits to every byte, so 600 Megabits per second is roughly equal to 60 MegaBytes per second... faster than most home networks! And this is wireless!

    When the final international standard for 4G is released in April, ETRIís LTE-Advanced technology will fulfill 95% of that standard. ETRI expects LTE-Advanced to become available in Korea country by 2014. This is basically 'true 4G' folks! Who wants to move to Korea now?

    This is not the first technology to be available in other countries before it comes close to coming here, nor do i see it being the last. With most tech companies being either out of country or on their way out of country, this is nothing surprising in my eyes.
    Resistance is futile.

    ^Yup.

    3D on phones, already out overseas. NFC thats on the Samsung Nexus S, already out overseas, Android phones with screen res that match the iPhone 4 or close, already out overseas.

    I'm sure the list could be longer.
    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
