Nokia wires an apartment complex with 52Gbps fiber in South Korea

Seoul, South Korea - Nokia and SK Broadband have provided the fastest fiber access speeds ever to a first set of apartment buildings in Seoul, South Korea, reaching aggregate speeds of 52.5 Gbps. 

SK Broadband is known as one of the leading service providers in fiber ultra-broadband, in terms of network coverage, number of users and the speeds offered.

Nokia just partnered with SK Broadband to wire an apartment complex in Seoul, South Korea with fiber optics delivering aggregate speeds of 52.5Gbps. That doesn't guarantee that every user will get that speed (only "selected" customers saw those rates), but it increases the chances that you'll receive gigabit-class bandwidth in your rental.

The trick was to use Nokia's "next generation" approach to passive optical networks, which lets internet providers implement multiple fiber technologies on an existing line. That, in turn, will save your telecom from having to spend a fortune to upgrade your tenement (assuming it already has fiber, that is).

It may take a while before it's easy to get gigabit internet access in any one-bedroom. Nokia has the luxury of running this fiber in South Korea, where population density and government plans work in its favor -- the country wants gigabit broadband available to all residents by 2020. It'd be a tougher prospect in the US and other countries where gigabit-grade data largely remains a pipe dream. Regardless, it's an important step towards democratizing ultra-fast speeds that have been limited to a handful of people worldwide.
