SK Telecom will carry the new iPhone on its recently launched LTE-Advanced network in South Korea. LTE-Advanced is true 4G wireless communication, offering considerable download speed improvements over the pre-4G LTE technology.
"SK Telecom is approaching Apple to put our LTE-A technology on the upcoming iPhone 5S. We are in the middle of negotiations," said an SK Telecom executive, requesting anonymity, told the Korea Times.
Samsung also announced its Galaxy S4 LTE-A for the same operator in Korea just last week. The SK Telecom network supports download speeds of up to 150Mbps, the fastest commercial mobile network in the world.
