3G license based on cdma2000 to be awarded by end-August
Posted: 27-Jul-2001 [Source: The Korea Herald]

[The long-delayed Korean 3G licensing bidding process appears to be reaching closure.]

by Yang Sung-jin -- "The Korean government said yesterday it will award the third and last third-generation mobile license by the end of August, heralding the imminent end of the long-delayed bidding process that has frustrated mobile service providers and investors.

"The last license is reserved for a consortium that will embrace 3G services based on cdma2000 technology spearheaded by Qualcomm Inc. of the U.S., a competing format to W-CDMA backed by Nokia and Ericsson.

"The government awarded two W-CDMA-based licenses to SK Telecom, the country's largest mobile carrier, and state-run Korea Telecom last December, but it has so far delayed awarding the last spectrum license amid intensifying dispute over the government's role in the project and dim business prospects for a cdma2000 service operator.

"The Ministry of Information and Communication, in charge of the controversy-ridden 3G licensing, said it will not offer any discount for the licensing fee, set at 1.15 trillion won, rejecting the repeated request from possible bidders such as Hanaro Telecom and LG Telecom.
