South Korea is launching the world’s first commercial 5G mobile network this week, ONA reports citing TechRadar.

SK Telecom will launch its service on Friday alongside the 5G-enabled version of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and will claim to have the fastest speeds, widest coverage and best security of any 5G operator.

The operator is South Korea’s largest and has 34,000 5G-enabled base stations with coverage concentrated in the busiest parts of 85 cities across the country. These include university districts, motorways, subway lines, and sporting venues.
