  • A few recent international surveys reported that Korea ranks the top with respect to the high-speed information and communication network subscription per 100 people in the world. Such infrastructure has been bringing about broad changes in Internet service for both business and individual users. By conducting a questionnaire survey on a moderate size of sample proportional to the population of each region across country, we try to analyze what factors might explain the level of Internet service satisfaction with respect to security, searching, and convenience dimensions. According to the test results, several factors such as sex, age, kind of network lines, usage frequency, e-mail usage, e-shopping, online problem experience might explain the different levels of Internet service satisfaction in the high-speed Internet network. This study might shed a guidance to scholars conducting Internet-related studies and practitioners who plan information policies and business strategies.

  • The primary purpose of this study is to present the fact that high-speed internet service should be designated as universal service because it becomes an indispensible and crucial service in the modern information society but free market system fails to implement universal service of high-speed internet service. To do so, it theoretically analyses previous works related to the issue of high-speed internet service and universal service in a critical point of view and investigates the current situation that high-speed internet service is not designated as universal service. In conclusion, this paper suggests that high-speed internet service should be included in the scope of universal service, in terms of infrastructure and minimum transmission speed, for the development of democracy and the information society.

  • This study aims to help address concerns about the growing demand of wider bandwidth Internet connection in the Philippines. Using articles and research of international organizations and content from official websites of the Philippine government, this paper has carefully examined the slow Internet connectivity and the high cost that the end-users pay for it. This paper suggests that this inefficiency hampers the motivation of users to innovate in a way that could contribute to inclusive growth and the development of an inclusive information society. Through a comparison of the current global ICT situation with the current situation in the Philippines, this paper shows that the country's Internet infrastructure lags behind among those of contemporary developing countries in Asia, particularly in terms of Internet connectivity. In 2015, Thailand had an average Internet speed of 7.4 Mbps, Sri Lanka 7.4, and Malaysia 4.3. Meanwhile, the Philippines had a meager average Internet speed of 2.8 Mbps, placing the country at 104 among 160 countries, with developed countries in Asia such as South Korea (23.6 Mbps) and Singapore (12.9 Mbps) ranking 1 and 12, respectively. Findings show that the lack of competition in the Internet connectivity market, among other reasons, is at the root of the dilemma of slow and costly Internet connection. Assessing the accomplishments of the Republic of Korea and other broadband-leading countries has provided practical insights and recommendations that can promote competitiveness. Furthermore, related literature argues how ISP practices may affect Internet speed and cost. This study offers an approach in improving Internet connectivity in the Philippines by bridging the gap between the Internet infrastructure market and government policies.

  • The growth of Internet usage even accelerated by the spread of high-speed Internet access network such as ADSI is affecting our socioeconomic activities and culture in a great way. Korea is recently reported to be the number one high-speed Internet network subscription per 100 people in the world. In a way to reflect this situation, we collect a moderate size of sample proportional to the population of each region across country and investigate what factors might explain the level of user's dissatisfaction with respect to Internet service they have been receiving. The results indicate that the set of gender, age, Internet usage, service kinds, incoming e-mails, and e-shopping is significantly influencing user's dissatisfaction, in that dissatisfaction is measured in 11 perspectives. In particular, user's age, gender, and e-shopping experiences are considered to be mostly explainable.

  • The objective of this paper is to analyze the profitability of expanding the high-speed internet network and provide the strategy and policy for the government and telecommunication providers to fill the information gaps in rural areas. First, we analyzed the situation where the accessibility of high-speed internet networks is deficient and reasons why it is slow to build the communication network infrastructure in the remote agricultural and fishing areas. Then economic analysis was performed to find out how much it cost to make it possible for every village of rural areas to access the high-speed internet network as well as sensitivity analysis.

  • This is an exploratory research to examine the high-speed Internet access service's quality There are relatively scanty studies on telecommunication service quality such as the high-speed Internet access service. It has long been considered that service qualify are composed of process quality and outcome quality. Conducting an empirical research, we proposed that traditional outcome quality should be segmented with technical quality and outcome quality. Outcome quality is related to meeting consumer's needs to seek terminal value. In this paper, we explore to diagnose the well-known SERVQUAL's applicability to telecommunication industry and suggest some strategic and practical implications.

  • In general cases, the conventionl Internet connected to a terrestrial network is too slow to transmit large medical images. To overcome this low speed problem of the Internet, we have developed asymmetric satellite data communication system (ASDCS) as a fast satellite Internet communication method. The ASDCS uses a receive-only satellite link for dat delivery and a terrestrial network for control communication. The satellite communication link we implemented showed the very high-speed performance compared to the terrestrial link. Using ASDCS, the satellite Internet communication was 10-30 times faster than the conventional terrestrial Internet link. Also we have developed a Web-based Telemedicine system that can access every permitted server of hospital via the Internet. Java programming techniques were used to make our system and it can access and retrieve medical information and images through only public web browser such as Netscape TM without additional specific tools. To increase the transmitting speed of our Telemedicine system, JPEG method was used. In conclusion, we were able to develop a fast and public Telemedicine system using the proposed ASDCS and Web technology. ASDCS technology increased the speed of the conventional Internet and Web technology extended the scope of use for Telemedicine system from intrahospital to public use.

  • The use of a smartphone with one hand has been getting difficult as the size of the smartphone display gets larger. In addition, people handicapped or using one hand for handling other pieces may encounter difficulties to touch exact numbers for calling with their smartphones. Thus, motion-tracked speed dialing can be a good solution for these cases and also an advanced feature applicable in the future network not requiring dedicated Internet connections. The previous study on this feature showed a result with a limitation of using servers connected via Internet connections for solving real-time control issues. Therefore, this paper proposes a scheme for the smartphone dialing on motion-tracked numbers without any servers or Internet connections, and presents the details of its implementation and results.
