WiBro is taking over South Korea :

wibroSouth Korea is shiping its new wireless network called WiBro, deriving from WiMax. For the moment it is only avilable in Seoul, but it will soon be extended to the other main cities and finaly to the whole country. This technology is really supported by the different providers... After tests made in the beginning of the year, it can be said that one antenna as a one kilometer raduis coverage and a hotspot a 50 meters one. Connection is still avilable in moving (until 120Km/h). Downloading bitrate goes up to 2Mb and uploading one is 1Mb but a Samsung exclusive PCMCIA card which costs 240€ enable you to acces this network. However mobile devices WiBro compatible will be soon avilable (PDA, DAP, laptop,...). KT, one of the biggest Korean internet provider wich designed this protocol with SK telecom leads a partnership between 21 providers world wide.
