TAESUNG FREEDOM VILLAGE, South Korea (Reuters) – South Korean mobile carrier KT Corp said on Thursday it launched 5G services in one of the world’s most heavily armed border zones separating the two Koreas.
The next generation technology is available in Taesung Freedom Village – a South Korean community in the 4-km (2.5-mile) wide Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea that former U.S. President Bill Clinton once called “the scariest place on Earth”.
North - Korea - Wealthy - South - War
Isolated North Korea and the wealthy, democratic South are still technically at war after the 1950-53 Korean War ended in an armistice, not a peace treaty.
The new technology will give villagers better access to online services, such as yoga classes, and enable them to water crops by remote control, KT said.
Life - Villagers - Farms - Chae - Uk
“Life here will get easier because villagers are normally escorted by military when they need to work on farms,” Chae Uk, a KT official, told reporters during a tour of the village where the company installed two 5G base stations.
