SKIMT will commence asynchronous IMT-2000 service next year. Test service targeting the Seoul region is scheduled to begin second quarter of next year, while commercial service covering 31 major cities will start at the third quarter of the same year.

SKIMT has already selected major switching and basestation equipment providers, such as Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics, Nortel Networks, and Alcatel. Initial development tests are slated for July this year. A second stage of tests is also being planned to address internetworking and service compatibility issues.

SKIMT has been selected together with other two companies by the South Korean government for undertaking the 3G system. SKIMT has acquired the license for IMT2000 in December 2001.
