Since the world's first 5G commercialisation in April 2019, the number of 5G subscribers in South Korea is rising quickly and has already surpassed 1 million. The cluster comprises a 5G environment with ICT including augmented reality, virtual reality and artificial intelligence. The company plans to build 5G cluster in business districts, parks and factories to provide differentiated 5G service and benefits in both of B2C and B2B sectors.

From 25 July, SK Telecom will operate the 5G League of Legends at Jonggak, Seoul whereby users can view messages from supporting fans nationwide with AR, VR live broadcasting and VR playback by facing their smartphones toward a certain location. SK Telecom also plans to build a total of 12 mobile edge computing (MEC) in 5G networks located at key regions nationwide providing dedicated 5G edge cloud service for enterprises that are in need of security and ultra-low latency communications such as media.

“With 5G cluster as our key focus, SK Telecom will provide customers with outstanding service and pleasure that are beyond the imagination,” said Yoo Young-sang, executive vice president and head of MNO Business of SK Telecom. “We will strive to create added values to different industries and regions.”
