KOREAN BUSES (at least in Seoul) will soon have internet connection as a matter of course. On the BBC”s Six O”clock news, business correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones has been running a series of reports from what is generally accepted as the world”s most technology-conscious country in the world. In a suburb of the city they have been running trials of what they call Wibro, wireless broadband. The new system promises to provide high-speed internet access, even in vehicles moving at more than 97 km/h (60mph), hence the bus. Some 3,000-test subscribers are putting it through its paces right now, and in June it will be launched commercially with a Wibro zone covering Seoul and then other major cities. Cellan-Jones noted that even on the deep subway the latest 3G phones operate without any problems. South Korea hopes to export its wireless broadband expertise to other countries. The question is whether everybody else will be quite so keen on connectivity as the Koreans.
