South Korean telecom firm KT on April 2 introduced its mobile data plan for 5G smartphones, hoping to attract customers with wide coverage and a range of content.

The nation’s second-largest mobile carrier launched three 5G mobile plans with free international roaming data in South Korea and 185 countries. They also offer voice calls and text messages for free. 


The basic 5G package is priced at 80,000 won ($70.35) for 5GB data, which is cheaper than the unlimited data plan for current LTE 4G phones.

The special plan offers 50 GB data for connecting smart devices and tethering for 100,000 won, and the premium package offers 100 GB for 130,000 won.

KT said it will offer a 360-degree media service as well as esports and high-quality music content to maximize the user experience with the help of the ultrafast, low-latency network.

The carrier said it will have about 30,000 network stations across the nation to launch its commercial 5G service by the time Samsung Electronics’ Galaxy S10 5G goes on sale on April 5.
