[The Chosun Ilbo, February 22 2008] Korea's WCDMA Subscribers Surpass 7 Mil.

More than seven million Koreans have signed up for WCDMA mobile phone services. WCDMA, which stands for wideband code division multiple access, is a third-generation mobile standard that is widely used in Europe.

KTF said Thursday that more than four million people had subscribed to its Show WCDMA service as of Wednesday.

It took KTF more than four months to woo one million subscribers after it launched the service in March last year, but it took only two months to increase the number from three million to four million.

Some 3.3 million people have subscribed to SK Telecom’s competing T Live service, meaning a total of 7.3 million Koreans now use WCDMA services.
