SK Telecom delays 3G phone service
Posted: 06-Jul-2001 [Source: CNet]

[SK Telecom pushes target date for launch of their 3G service to May of 2003.]

by Ben Charny -- "South Korea's SK Telecom joined the growing list of telephone service providers to delay the introduction of next-generation high-speed wireless telephone services.

"In a conference call with investors Wednesday, SK Telecom Chief Executive Pyo Moon Soo said the service was supposed to be offered to some 10 million SK Telecom customers by May 2002. That target date is now May 2003.

"The Korean government had hoped that carriers would showcase the service in time for the 2002 World Cup, which will be held in both South and North Korea.

"But Soo said that will be impossible, in part because of delays by the manufacturers building the handsets needed to receive the videos, music downloads and other features the new network is expected to offer.

"Soo said the delay was "inevitable."
