Abstract

Despite of the suffering from an economic crisis in 1997, broadband Internet access growth in South Korea had been remarkable. By December 2000, there were 19 million Internet users, 40% of the population, of which 3.96 million households were using broadband technology to access the Internet. This represents more than ten-fold increase from the previous year. This paper explores the phenomenal growth of broadband in South Korea. It analyses the key demand drivers and the key supply factors that made broadband such a huge success in South Korea. It also examines the possible reasons for the relatively slower broadband adoption rate in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore.
