[The Hankyoreh, October 19 2007] WiBro approved as 3G communications technology

South Korea's homegrown wireless Internet technology WiBro has been included in international third-generation (3G) communications standards, which will allow it to make greater inroads into global markets, a government agency said Friday.

On Thursday, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a global tech policymaking group, held a meeting in Geneva in which it included the WiBro technology as one of its 3G communications standards, the Ministry of Information and Communication said.

WiBro, or wireless broadband Internet, is a technology designed to allow users to log into high-speed Internet connections even when they are on the move.
