Internet in South Korea

Guide to South Korea

Internet in South Korea

South Korea has one of the highest rates of internet usage in the world. Due to strong government support it also has one of the highest rates of broadband connectivity, with most households being able to choose ISDN, ADSL, cable, or satellite in addition to traditional dial-up modems for connectivity.Internet in Thailand

The Korean top-level domain is .kr and major sub-domains include .co (company), .or (organization), .go (government), and .ac (academic). Many companies also use the main top-level domains (.com, .net, and .org). These days many companies are also using Korean language domain names (written in Hangeul).

Broadband Services

Broadband companies offer fast Internet access to homes and businesses through leased lines, cable modems, xDSL and satellite. Because of competition prices can change quickly. Companies periodically offer special rates when adding a new service to a neighborhood.

When you arrive in South Korea most likely your apartment will be furnished and internet ready. Your landlord will then tell you how much the current internet service is and how the payment system works. However, if you do need to set up your own internet or would like to change to a better service, we recommend the following broadband companies:

Company Name URL Phone
Korea Telecom http://www.kt.co.kr 080-2580-201

Thrunet http://www.thrunet.com 080-1588-3488

Dial-up Services

Although broadband Internet services are available, some people may still need dial-up access to the Internet. In additional to KT, several other ISPs offer dial-up access over regular phone lines. Several have special dial-up access numbers with discounted rates.
