A report from South Korea says one of the operators there, KT, has developed a new version of the WiBro wireless broadband technology that supports IPv6. This means that the WiBro network will have access to scads more IP addresses, since Korea's already run through 90 percent of the 49 million allotted to it in IPv4. We're sort of curious why they bothered, though, given another piece of news from Korea today saying that KT's managed to attract all of 906 subscribers to its WiBro network since its launch in June. Still, that's more than rival SK, which has grabbed just 151 users -- though the company can take heart in the staggering 1000% growth in that figure since September.
