SK Telecom is boosting its LTE network ahead of the roll out of 5G. SK Telecom has rolled out 1.2Gbps LTE with the launch of Samsung's Galaxy S10 in South Korea, the telco announced. SK Telecom said the new speed will allow a HD 2GB movie to be downloaded in 13 seconds and is 16 times faster than LTE speeds when it was first rolled out in 2011. It achieved the speed through the application of 4x4 multi-antenna technology into three bands, the company said. Samsung's Galaxy S10, which the telco began shipping on Monday for those who pre-ordered the device, will enjoy data transfer rates up to 1.15Gbps in the cities of Seoul, Busan, Ulsan, Gwangju, and Daejun.
