Number of 5G subscribers exceeded 7 million in South Korea
South Korea, one of the technology bases in the world, is among the fastest transitioning countries to 5G. The number of 5G subscribers in the country continues to rise rapidly.
According to the latest data announced, the number of 5G subscribers in the country has exceeded 7 million. It is stated that South Korea’s agreement with 3 major operators in 2019 has a large share in this. In addition, the rate of increase in the number of subscribers in the country also increases. While 520 thousand new subscribers were gained in March, this number increased to 536 thousand in May.
However, considering that the total number of subscribers in the country is at the level of 69 million, we can say that the subscribers reaching 5G now are around 10 percent. However, it seems that the transition to 5G in South Korea will be very fast due to the extensive 5G promotions in the country and the citizens’ great interest. Also, approaching the end of the 115 thousand 5G base station in the country shows how determined it is.
The South Korean government has also invested $ 3.4 billion in 3 operators and aims to reach the end-user by 2022.
