Lessons from South Korea: When Broadband Meets the Mass Market Indeed, some operators are struggling to generate net revenue growth from the switch to broadband, and almost all countries still have a long way to go before broadband becomes a mass-market phenomenon. The lone exception is South Korea. Korea’s experience has important implications for other countries. We will focus here on three critical questions: What has caused the rapid penetration in Korea? How has broadband changed consumer behavior? And which players are likely to make money from broadband? Broadband's future: Lessons from South Korea For years, the telecom industry has scrutinized developments in South Korea, where a combination of public support and strong demand has created the world's most ubiquitous broadband network. Now that the market is saturated, there are new lessons to be learned from the South Korean experience. South Korea's broadband providers can no longer rely on higher subscriptions to fuel profitability. Instead, they must look for new growth engines, such as home networking and faster broadband, and develop skills beyond building and running a vast network. Their triumphs and failures will continue to provide lessons for the industry in other countries. USTR Foreign Trade Barriers – Korea 2004 STANDARDS, TESTING, LABELING AND CERTIFICATION The U.S. government is seriously concerned that a pattern of exclusionary practices is starting to emerge in the setting of standards for new technologies in the field of next generation mobile communications. Telecommunication As one of the world's most advanced telecommunications markets, Korea is actively commercializing a variety of cutting-edge wireless technologies, such as IMT 2000, cdma2000 1ev-do, and W-CDMA, as well as introducing terrestrial and satellite-based digital TV broadcasting. Korea, the Digital Laboratory of the Globe CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt The future is South Korea Tech firms try out latest in world's most wired society March 13, 2005 "It's still much more popular in Korea," said Brooke Richardson, MSN lead product manager. "It's not only that the U.S. is not so advanced in broadband. Mobile phone usage is not so high here either. MSN is bridging the two worlds of PCs and mobile phones, and Korea has that connectivity. We have incubated some of our stuff in Korea, like mobile instant messaging and mobile e-mail. We have also launched services there that the rest of the world was not ready for." South Korea leads the way July 28, 2004 "I didn't realize how much the Web had to offer until I got to Korea," said Renck, a programmer by training. "I couldn't appreciate it until I got here and saw what true high-speed access does to change your perception of how fast information truly moves.“ … Cumulative revenue from online content has similarly exploded. Companies that provide online games and services like the Cyworld blogging site have penetrated all segments of society and become a national obsession. Corporate executives chronicle their daily lives through blogs.
