WiBro is Korea WiMAX I believe and why your 3G would not pick up. Not sure if WiBro ever went anywhere big time. maybe they converted the WiMAX antennae to WiFi?

Hi Martin,
just 2 comments on your great article.

You wrote: "everything that does not move has several antennas on top or on the side." Even the moving things have several antennas.
I was surprised to get Wi-Fi on public city buses too!

KT Wibro (WIMAX) is still alive and it's working well, giving a superb high speed connectivity. I am frequently using a Wibro / Wi-fi converter when I'm in Korea.

They use a lot of repeaters in Korea. It easily outnumbers the number base stations. I have heard numbers 5-10 times as many repeaters as base stations.
