|Title||Korea offers the world’s best hotel WiFi|
Korea is the most wired country on earth and continues to live up to its
reputation as the home to the most advanced technology on the planet.
It has the fastest average broadband speed at 22.1 mbps which is nearly
twice as much as their nearest rival Japan who comes in at 13.3 mbps coupled
with the fastest 4G network anywhere in the world. Seoul is the world’s most
connected city with over 10,000 free wifi hot spots which includes every part
of Incheon International Airport.
So it is with no surprise that South Korea came top in hotel WiFi quality by ‘Hotel WiFi Test’ who released a
recent report that
ranks cities, countries, and world regions by WiFi attributes. Two
characteristics of hotel WiFi are considered: the quality of the WiFi and
whether in-room WiFi is free. Korea scored 92%, some distance in front of its
nearest competitor, which means that business or leisure travellers to the
destination, can expect super-fast and consistently stable WiFi during their
stay, which has increasingly become a priority for every hotel guest.
Hotel WiFi Test stated in the report, that a
hotel is judged as having adequate WiFi if they can provide an expected
download speed of at least 3 Mbps (the Netflix recommendation for SD-quality
streaming). In Korea widespread download speeds achieve 80 mbps and
that’s why you will see that most commuters watching TV or gaming on their smartphones
when commuting, even on Seoul’s enormous metro system.
With 70% of Korea’s population owning a smartphone, the demand for
faster download speeds and greater innovation is unabated so travellers to this
tech powerhouse can be sure of super fast, super stable and generally free WiFi
when they stay in a Korean hotel.
