SK Telecom is one of the few carriers to dabble in LTE Advanced and the new S4 is the first commercially available Samsung phone to support it. LTE Advanced offers speeds of up to 150Mbps, which is a lot faster than broadband connections in most homes.

The carrier says it will offer seven LTE-A advanced phones this year and it plans to extend coverage to 84 Korean cities. Europe and the US aren’t as lucky, though. LTE is anything but commonplace in Europe and it’s still being rolled out in many countries.
