What is WiBro Technology ?

WiBro (Wireless Broadband) is a wireless broadband Internet  technology developed by the South Korean telecoms industry. WiBro is the South Korean service name for IEEE802.16e(mobile WiMAX) international standard. By the end of 2012, the Korean Communications Commission intends to increase WiBro broadband connection speeds to 10Mbit/s, around ten times the current speed, which will complement their 1Gbit/sec fiber-optic network.

WiBro base stations offer an aggregate data throughput of 30 to 50 Mbit/s per carrier and cover a radius of 1–5 km allowing for the use of portable internet usage. In detail, it provides mobility for moving devices up to 120 km/h (74.5 mi/h) compared to Wireless LAN having mobility up to walking speed and mobile phone technologies having mobility up to 250 km/h.

Data speeds of WiBro

  • Peak Download128 Mbit/s
  • Peak Upload56 Mbit/s

Advantage of WiBro

  • Wireless Internet provides super fast broadband speed, approaching 2 megabytes per second or faster.
  • Wireless Internet is more affordable and more reliable than satellite broadband, since satellite signals typically have to travel tens of thousands of miles.
  • Wireless Internet is also incredibly responsive, when you call up web pages, download emails, and engage in teleconferencing or video conferencing over the net, your wireless Internet system will yield ultra fast transmission.
  • radio frequencies, and traffic congestion can all impede wireless Internet flow.
  • wireless Internet is a wonderful way to optimize your surfing time.

Disadvantage of WiBro

wireless traffic, hacking into your connection.
