The Scoop

Internet Service

Everyone uses the Internet. There’s no such thing as dial-up Internet in Korea anymore. Even though there should be high-speed internet access for teachers to use at work, you can also get it at home.

Do You Want Internet Service at Home?
You have two options: 1. Get it on your own after you get your alliance card, and install it yourself or 2. Get it under a Korean friend’s name. Because of the language, it will be much easier if you get your Korean friend’s help.

The service fee can be withdrawn automatically from your bank account. There is usually no installation fee, and the service fee varies from 25,000won to 45,000won per month, depending on the service package and Internet speed you choose.

Where Can I Use the Internet if I Don’t Have a Computer?
There are “PC Bangs” and “PC Rooms” everywhere in Korea. Regardless of where you live, you will see lots of “PC” signs. They usually charge as little as 1,500 won/per hr.
