The mobile WiMax-like technology has seen a, shall we say, slow start in its native land: South Korea’s operators have rolled out WiBro far ahead of similar technology in other nations. The service launched a year ago June, and KT Corp. has acquired 479 subscribers, while SK Telecom has a whopping 15. Coverage is limited to parts of Seoul, however. And there are no WiBro handsets, either. By contrast, 31,000 HSDPA phones have been sold. [link via TechDirt]
