IMT 2000 service better if postponed, experts say

by Kim Min-hee -- The third generation telecom service known as IMT-2000, which allows users to receive real-time color video images, is best postponed to later than early 2002 as forecasted by service operators, given the level of W-CDMA (wideband code division multiple access) technology Korea possesses, experts said recently. "Europe embarked on developing W-CDMA technology as early as 1994 or 1995, compared to Korea, which began preparing just a couple of years ago. It may be wise to postpone the service until we reach a time when we'll be able to produce most of the technology on our own," said a Samsung Electronics official, who wished to remain anonymous.

Echoing thoughts of many experts, the Samsung official questioned the rationale behind starting IMT-2000 service based on W-CDMA networks in 2002, when the commercialization of IS-95C service, also known as cdma2000 1x, is to shortly take off early next year.

"The public may find IS-95C satisfying enough to not switch to IMT-2000 for a long while," the official said.
