Archived report: this report was archived September 2005 and has not been updated. South Korea is considered a leader in Third generation (3G) mobile technology and has the world’s highest percentage of mobile users on 3G. WCDMA, the second 3G standard to enter the Korean market after CMDA2000, became commercially available in December 2003, though the service was failing to attract subscribers even into 2005. In other 3G news in 2005, the government was showing concern that LG Telecom had not launched 3G services despite holding a licence. This report examines the South Korean 3G market as well as early developments toward 4G technology.
