LG to re-bid for IMT-2000 if bidders given choice of mode
Posted: 25-Dec-2000 [Source: The Korea Herald]

[Consortium says it is uninterested in bidding if license is to be for cdma2000 stating inability to compete due to W-CDMA's expected 80% 3G market share.]

LG Glocom, an LG-led consortium, said yesterday that it would re-bid in the planned follow-up contest for a business license for the next generation mobile service only if the government accepts its request to let bidders choose their service mode.

The consortium failed to win an IMT-2000 license Dec. 15, as the Ministry of Information and Communication chose consortiums led by SK Telecom and Korea Telecom as operators of W-CDMA (wideband-code division multiple access) mode service. The ministry plans to grant one remaining license to an applicant opting for cdma2000-based service in February next year. LG Glocom has said it won't apply for a cdma2000 license, arguing that mobile businesses based on the technology can't compete with operations based on W-CDMA for market volume and investment cost.

W-CDMA, developed by European companies, is projected to take over 80 percent of the third generation wireless service market. Qualcomm-licensed cdma2000 is expected to have a smaller market, limited to Korea, the United States and a few other countries.
