[ News, Science / Tech, October 19 2007] WiBro approved as 3G communications technology

Korea's homegrown wireless Internet technology WiBro has been included in international third-generation (3G) communications standards, allowing it to make greater inroads into global markets, a government agency said Friday (Oct. 19).

On Thursday (Oct. 18), the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a global tech policymaking group, held a meeting in Geneva in which it included the WiBro technology as the sixth 3G communications standard, 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.
