The Korean Ministry of Science and ICT and SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus plan to start commercial operations of the 5G mobile network in 2019. According to the same source, mobile operators are expected to choose a fee plan that charges subscribers based on their usage of services, instead of flat-rate pricing, in an attempt to increase sales and cover high initial investments.
