While we're still struggling to get EDGE to appear on our phones, South Korea is on its way to introducing 5G internet...
"Do I wait five hours, download the movie and then watch it? But it's getting late, hmm, maybe I can stream and leave it to load for a bit. Shit, first three links are bogus. Yes! Finally found a good one, ah damn, it doesn't load without playing. Might as well go to sleep."
You've all been through this at one time or another, and it's mainly because Egypt's internet is slower then our democratic process. If you want to subdue a nation into political apathy, all you have to do is GIVE THEM FAST INTERNET. They'd be too distracted watching shit online all day to give a shit about what's happening in the country. Let South Korea be a lesson to you Mr. Sisi. Their science ministry has announced a $1.5 Billion plan to introduce 5G wireless service to the country, which would allow people to download a whole movie in literally one second. Meanwhile, we've just introduced WIFI to a couple of busses. They aim to implement the technology within six years as an upgrade to their current 4G technology. What the fuck is EDGE?
"We helped fuel national growth with 2G services in the 1990s, 3G in the 2000s and 4G around 2010. Now it is time to take preemptive action to develop 5G," the ministry said in a statement. Priority will be given to developing key features for the new network, including Ultra-HD and hologram transmission as well as cutting-edge social networking services.
We don't mind waiting six years and shelling out on a flight to Asia; it'll probably be faster than streaming anything here.
