Samsung Galaxy Note 3 demos 300Mbps downloads at MWC

BARCELONA, Spain — Qualcomm and KT have been giving delegates at Mobile World Congress a taste of the faster download speeds we can expect to see around the world soon.Tucked away in the corner of one exhibition hall is KT (formerly Korea Telecom) showing off a modified Samsung Galaxy Note 3 connected to a bunch of computers at its booth. It looks boring, but it represents the future: mobiles capable of downloading data at 300Mbps.
