[The Chosun Ilbo, October 24 2007] Korea-U.S. Internet Speed to Surge Next Year

From July next year, the speed of Internet transmissions between Korea and the U.S. is likely to become much faster. Chinese media on Tuesday reported that construction has started on a 26,000 km submarine fiber-optic cable that will span from China's coastal city of Qingdao to the U.S.

The Trans-Pacific Express is being laid by six telecom operators including KT, Verizon from the U.S., Chunghwa Telecom of Taiwan, and China Telecom.
