Korea: Come for the Soju, Stay for the Broadband

The typical real-time Internet connection speed in the United States is a mortifying 2.35 megabits per second, so it’s particularly galling to hear that Korea, which already offers its citizens broadband speeds of up to 100Mbps, is planning to introduce 1Gbps service by 2012.
