One of the attributes of Korean business is its state of the art telecommunications. Koreans are "wired."

But are they the most "wired" ?

Korea has one of the highest Internet penetration rates in the world. According to the latest data compiled by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Iceland tops the list with nearly 30 percent of the population subscribing to a broadband Internet connection.

Korea ranks second, followed by the Netherlands and Denmark. The average number per 100 inhabitants in all OECD member countries is below fourteen.

By the way, Korea boasts the fastest broadband download speed, along with Japan, thanks to the use of fiberoptic cable connections. In fact, Korea's Internet is about 10 times faster than the U.S.
