SEOUL -- SK Telecom (NYSE:SKM) today announced, at a press conference held at its headquarter, that it commercialized 225Mbps LTE-Advanced, that is three times as fast as 75Mbps LTE, on the smartphones supporting the technology for the first time in the world.

SK Telecom upgraded the existing LTE-Advanced which provides up to 150Mbps by applying Carrier Aggregation (CA) technology that binds 20MHz bandwidth in 1.8GHz band and 10MHz bandwidth in 800MHz band. 225Mbps LTE-Advanced literally offers speeds of up to 225Mbps, which is three times as fast as 75Mbps LTE and fifteen times as 3G. At its peak speed, customers are able to download a 1GB movie just in 37 seconds.

Backed by the high-speed network service, subscribers of SK Telecom will be able to enjoy more enriched mobile experiences. Assuming that all 2GB, the average monthly data consumption per user for LTE, is spent on downloading, if using 225Mbps LTE-Advanced, the user can save 2 min+26 sec and 17 min + 18 sec of waiting time each month compared to the previous 75Mbps LTE and 3G respectively.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
