With a population of over 10 million, Seoul has become world’s leader in broadband deployment, with a penetration rate of 60% of Internet users by year-end 2001, according to Frost & Sullivan. More important than basic penetration has been the rapid growth of a "broadband lifestyle," which finds citizens of Seoul spending an average of 13 hours per week on the Internet.
