SK Telecom may use Huawei gear for LTE rollout - report

Friday 28 February 2014 | 00:23 CET | News
Korean communications carrier SK Telecom has signed a non-binding agreement with Chinese equipment supplier Huawei to use wireless network equipment for its LTE network. A source told the Korea Times that the company is closely monitoring the development of the LG Uplus-Huawei deal and depending on the situation, SK Telecom will sign a contract for Huawei equipment. It will likely take some time to sign an official deal due to security concerns surrounding Huawei equipment. A spokesperson for SK Telecom, however, denied the deal.
