South Korea Telecommunications Report Q4 2017

South Korea Telecommunications Report Q4 2017

BMI View: South Korean operators are investing heavily in Internet of Things (IoT) strategies and rollingout their own dedicated NB-IoT and LPWA networks. The rapid growth of Kakao Bank is positive for theexpansion of fintech in South Korea, with regulators suggesting that they are open to establishing moreonline banks. We expect the impact of a change of president on the ICT sector to be muted in the near term,and the objectives outlined by the government for the ICT sector in 2017 to be pursued following a liberalas well as conservative victory. The South Korean government has adopted a 'universal' mobile package thatall operators will have to offer in 2018, as part of its ongoing efforts to reduce the cost of mobile services. Auniversal basic mobile package and fewer bureaucratic hurdles will largely benefit MVNOs, as their profitsfrom basic services will be less impacted and barriers for new entrants will be lowered
