SK Telecom confirms migration to LTE

During a press conference by the new CEO Man-Won Jung of SK Telecom, which is the largest mobile operator in South Korea, he confirmed that they are currently researching and evaluating LTE, and that he sees a commercial launch in 2013.

Another interesting comment by CEO Jung is that the company will pursue both LTE and WiBro which is the Korean version of the Mobile WiMAX but that they will not support voice service on WiBro. They view WiBro more as a complimentary service to their existing voice network providing high speed data connection in hot spot locations.

Note that the news article is in Korean.
