KT Launches Giga LTE for Gigabit Download Speeds

Giga-LTE promotion-01KT Corp. plans to  commercialize the world’s fastest mobile network, called “Giga LTE,” that apparently provides that speed by bonding both Wi-Fi and LTE capacity, the Korea Herald reports.  


Giga LTE supports a maximum download speed of 1.17 Gbps, about 15 times faster than the LTE and four times faster than the LTE-Advanced. Presumably the system uses some form of carrier aggregation.  


Giga LTE also provides upload speeds 10 times faster than LTE-A, and relies on use of Samsung smartphones including the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

“Another five to six more high-end and mid-end Samsung handsets, compatible with the Giga LTE, will be released in the latter half of 2015 along with some LG Electronics handsets, Korea Telecom says.
