KT intros 10 Giga WiFi service at Starbucks stores in Seoul

Monday 23 July 2018 | 19:42 CET | News
South Korea's KT is offering its '10 Giga WiFi' service at Starbucks' three major Reserve stores across Seoul. More Reserve stores with the internet service will open across the country in the coming months. The new Wi-Fi service in Starbucks' premium shops is the latest step in preparing for the early commercial use of next-generation wireless technology. KT has showcased the test service in the flagship showroom at its headquarters in downtown Seoul since December last year. It also debuted a new in-venue WiFi service during the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang earlier in 2018.
