South Korea’s three major mobile carriers will share their 5G networks in remote coastal and farm towns in a move to accelerate the rollout of the latest generation networks, the ICT ministry said Thursday.The carriers — SK Telecom Co., KT Corp. and LG Uplus Corp. — signed an agreement so that 5G users can have access to the high-speed network regardless of the carrier they are subscribed to in 131 remote locations across the country, according to the Ministry of Science and ICT.
Under the plan, a 5G user would be able to use other carrier networks in such regions that are not serviced by his or her carrier.
The ministry said telecom operators will test the network sharing system before the end of this year and aim for complete commercialization in phases by 2024.
The ministry said the selected remote regions are sparsely populated, with a population density of 92 people per square kilometer, compared with those without network sharing at 3,490 people per square kilometer.
The move comes as the country races to establish nationwide 5G coverage, with network equipment currently installed in major cities.
The three telecom operators promised in July last year to invest up to 25.7 trillion won ($23.02 billion) to update their network infrastructure by 2022.
As of February, the country had 13.66 million 5G subscriptions, accounting for 19 percent of its total mobile users. South Korea was the world’s first country to commercialize 5G in April 2019. (Yonhap)

It’s not. I didn’t read the article, but I don’t have to. Why?
Invariably, articles like this start egalitarian. A problem is stated and this tool solved it. Beer and or profits ensue.
Lo and behold, it worked in other situations … in the same environment.
Wasn’t this great? Won’t this be as great for you?
Cut to — no, it won’t. Why? My org is maybe like yours but not close enough. Or not at all close to yours. My edge cases are different. My almost edge cases are different. My org has this thing, and this other thing, and …
Stop pretending your “solution” is more than a local one from which others can learn elements that might address something in their environment. THERE IS NO MAGIC BULLET, EVER, ANYWHERE, ALWAYS. There is no piece of software or shiny new device, diet, service, workout, process, or whatever that will solve your problems.
A magic bullet presupposes a lack of agency, that if your workflow doesn’t fit in this specific vortex of productivity you’re doing it wrong.
