South Korea’s wireless date traffic jumped at a faster clip in a year as 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) service has become widely available. Notably, the share of data traffic through the LTE service surpassed 50 percent of the total.
The total wireless data traffic grew from 29,748 terabytes (TB) in January 2012, 41,985 TB in June to 47,581 TB, according to a recent data released by the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning. The number went up 196 percent on-year to reach as high as 58,262 TB in January.
The figure includes traffic on the second generation (2G) Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA), 3G Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) and 4G LTE, offered by telecom operators. The number excluded data traffic on the WiFi service as it is an option relative to other forms of wireless services.
