Before coming to Korea, I heard that the internet speed is the fastest in this country and in some EPIK promotional video, one teacher said the internet here is 50 times faster than it is 'back home'. I was very impressed by when my actual experience with the internet here leaves me disappointed. I was used to 10 Mbps back home but I swear the speed in my apartment is at least 5 to 6 times slower and at my school, it's at least 10 times slower, no exaggeration. My Skype videos not as smooth as they used to anymore :( what's more, it's cable and not wireless which is quite inconvenient.
But the price of internet is cheaper so as long as the connection is stable, I should be grateful.
