Hi
I'm a student in Gwangju and I recently rented a room outside
I need to get Internet over there but I don't know how to do it
Any ideas?
I have a roommate so I want to way to divide it for two computers as well
What equipment should I buy for doing this?
Thank you

EDIT: Please also tell me the estimated cost. Thanks

Call KT.

They will hook up your internet and you can get a wireless router.

All done.

Your local cable TV company should have a cheaper albeit slower option - 15-20k won.

'slower' is not a problem for me as long as it can play streaming videos and allows me to use remote desktop even after dividing the connection between two computers
I can tolerate a little lag if needed
I will check out the cable tv option
Thank you for your help
And by the way, will they do the connection on weekends?
