Abstract

Korea has made significant progress in developing its telecommunications infrastructure and services market since the early 1980s. The policy priority in the 1980s was to satisfy the demand for basic telephony by constructing telecom infrastructure and establishing public telecom service providers, including KT (Korea Telecom). In the 1990s, the government actively sought to introduce competition, deregulation, and privatization of public telecom service providers and to promote enhanced telecommunications services and the information telecommunications (IT) industry. As of March 2000, 37 facilities-based services providers, 211 resale-based service providers, and more than 3,700 value-added service providers were competing in the Korean telecom services market, in which over eighteen years (1981–1999) sales had grown more than 26 times in size. This report examines the development of the telecom market in Korea, assesses its telecom policy, and offers some indications of future directions. (The rest omitted)
