Seoul, South Korea (2002)
Tuesday, January 1, 2002

In 2001, Frost & Sullivan named South Korea the world’s leader in broadband deployment, and Seoul, the capital and primary population center, is the hotbed of the phenomenon.  Year-on-year, the number of subscribers grew 59% from 2000 to 2001.  According to the OECD, there were 23 million broadband users in Korea by the end of 2001, 50% of the online population, including 8 million individual subscriptions.  This achievement is the product of strong government policy in support of broadband services.  Three years ago, the Ministry of Information and Communications made broadband infrastructure a high priority, reflecting the goals of President Kim Dae Jung.  The government began to invest in networks for its agencies, schools and universities and offered US$400 million in loans to carriers for infrastructure construction.  This led first Korea Telecom and then its competitors to invest an estimated $10 billion in network development.
