Korea could revoke LG Telecom's 3G license

LG Telecom in South Korea could now lose its 3G license after it announced it would delay the rollout of the network in favor of upgrading its 1.8 GHz CDMA2000 network. LG Telecom was awarded an operating license in the 2 GHz band for CDMA2000 services in 2001, and Korea's telecom minister has suggested the ministry could revoke the license or penalize the company. It's no wonder the company is focusing all of its efforts on EV-DO Rev. A. There is a broadband wireless war coming, with SK Telecom deploying HSDPA, KT and SK Telecom offering WiBro and EV-DO services from several operators.
