SKorean carriers switch on 5G networks Before schedule

SK Telecom and two smaller carriers had planned initially to launch 5G in South Korea today with Samsung Electronics' new Galaxy S10 5G smartphone.

The carriers of 5G services from South Korea said that 15,000 buyers have already subscribed to the LG Uplus 5G service, and more than 10,000 users have subscribed to KT company's offer.

The 5G networks of the three South Korean mobile operators went live at 11pm on Wednesday, hours before U.S. carrier Verizon turned on its 5G network in some areas of Minneapolis and Chicago a week ahead of schedule.

But according to Yonhap, the South Korean launches came two hours earlier, at 11pm (10pm Singapore time) on Wednesday.

The sales began two days after the world's first nationwide 5G network powered up in the East Asian country.

Although Korea claims to be the first country to commercialize 5G services, some experts are questioning if there was a proper reason to advance the launch date from April 5.
