When it comes to high internet speeds, many of us expect that probably US, UK or Japan will be on the top of the list. But that’s not true. Rather, a quite unexpected contender, South Korea, boasts the fastest internet speeds in the world. Now, the country has achieved yet another significant milestone which hasn’t been achieved by any other nation.


The new record that South Korea has achieved is that it has been able to pass 100% percent domestic penetration of high-speed internet. That is an extra-ordinary accomplishment since in a huge majority of the countries, this still sounds like a futuristic dream.

This has been reported by Korea Herald based on the data from Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). By the end of 2010, South Korea had already achieved 89.8 percent domestic penetration of high-speed internet. And by the end of 2011, this number had increased to 100.6 percent.

The figure of 100.6 percent may be slightly confusing but it doesn’t mean that South Korea has more internet users than its actual population. Rather, OECD gauges internet penetration through different technologies, including mobile networks, Wi-Fi as well as broadband.

The domestic penetration in South Korea is nearly double of that in Germany, US and UK. It is also significantly higher than Finland which has a domestic penetration of 87.8 percent, Sweden with its 98 percent and Japan at 82.4 percent.

One of the major factors that have boasted the penetration of high-speed internet in the country is the use of smartphones. Right now, nearly 27 million people in South Korea tool smartphones. And thanks to availability of LTE connectivity, people are generally able to use high-speed internet over their smartphones.
