WiBro Test

WiBro, wireless broadband, will be tested during the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics.

Telecom Italia has signed a deal with Samsung Electronics, to test out South Korea's answer to WiMax technology. The implementation would be the first in Europe.

WiBro allegedly offers wireless data speeds of up to 30 megabits per second, and work is being done to make the standard compatible with WiMax.

Samsung launched a trial version of the service in South Korea last month, and unveiled the first WiBro-enabled phone at that time.
