Korean operator KT is looking forward to showcasing some of the world’s leading 5G network services next year at the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang — and participants at ITU Telecom World this week were given a sneak preview at the Korea Pavilion.

On hand to describe KT’s plans to make 5G a driver of the ‘4th Industrial Revolution’ in Korea, Jiyoung Lee, Senior Public Relations Manager of KT said that KT was the first in the world to roll out nationwide 1-gigabyte-per-second service 2014.

So global leadership in 5G is a natural evolution for KT, she suggested.

“KT made it a goal to complete the intelligent network … so that it will be the pipeline of the 4th industrial revolution.”

KT focuses on 5 platforms, said Ms. Lee.

Those include: media, smart energy, company and public value enhancement, commerce and disaster and security.
