[The Chosun Ilbo, May 22 2008] Mobile Operator Tests 3G Network in N.Korea

Orascom Telecom, a leading Egyptian mobile operator which secured a license for a third-generation WCDMA mobile service in North Korea, said it has successfully tested its network in a North Korean city.

The communist country introduced a GSM-based telecom service in Pyongyang and the Rajin-Sonbong special economic zone in 2002, but it has banned any use of mobile phones since 2004.
