Synopsis

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.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
