Seoul Subway’s Wifi to get 100 times faster

Posted by

Starting in June this year, Seoul Subway’s wireless network will be 100 times faster than the current one. Korean Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute(ETRI) has developed 1 Gigabit (Gbps) Mobile Hotspot Network (MHN) technology and will be applied to the subway.

This technology is about 100 times faster than WiBro, which was used in the existing Wi-Fi system. It is 30 times faster than LTE base. The researchers stated that when MHN technology transfers data, 550 subway passengers can watch high-definition (HD) video at the same time.

They will launch the network beginning from Seoul Subway Line 8 and extend into other lines of the subway.
