WiBro Frequency Named 4G World Standard

Posted on englishnews@chosun.com

The 2.3 GHz frequency used by the Korea-developed WiBro technology was selected as the world’s standard frequency spectrum for 4G mobile telecommunications at the World Radiocommunication Conference in Geneva, Switzerland on Saturday. This means that Korean IT equipment makers will not have to produce separate WiBro devices for domestic consumption and export.


Developed jointly by the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute, Samsung Electronics, KT and SK Telecom, WiBro is a wireless broadband Internet technology that enables high-speed transmissions of high-capacity data while on the move.

The technology was chosen as a 3G mobile standard at the radio assembly of the International Telecommunication Union last month, and will be developed into the 4G mobile standard.
