July 26, 2011 - PRLog -- South Korea's three mobile operators - SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus - have released their latest operational data for the quarter ended March 2011. This has enabled BMI to review and update, where appropriate, forecasts for all sectors in this report.

Although the mobile penetration rate in South Korea has exceeded 100%, we have upgraded our forecasts for the number of subscribers in the country through 2015 in light of continued strong net additions in the first quarter of 2011. We believe that the robust performance is due to growth in sophisticated mobile devices, namely smartphones and tablet computers, as it is becoming increasingly common for consumers in developed countries to own several of these gadgets. Furthermore, mobile virtual network operators are on track to be introduced in H211, and we expect their entry to help lower tariff rates and capture niche and untapped markets.

The Korea Communications Commission (KCC) has recognised the potential of near field communications and has roped in stakeholders - mobile operators, handset equipment manufacturers, financial institutions, billing service providers and government organisations - to form the Grand NFC Korea Alliance. We believe that this move to bring rivals onboard is largely to eliminate the issue of different technological standards that are not compatible, and to ensure the entire industry moves in the same direction while the market is still in its infancy. This chimes with the growing global interest in the contactless technology, and we believe that a coordinated joint platform is an effective means to give impetus to the fledgling industry in South Korea.

South Korea remained in fourth position even though there was a decline in the country's Telecoms Rating score. South Korea remains attractive to investors in spite of its maturity as it is well connected - both wired and wirelessly. Furthermore, businesses and consumers are receptive to new technologies and services, which make the country a front runner in the global ICT industry.

Meanwhile, we see disinflation taking hold in South Korea as headline consumer price inflation (CPI) eased to 4.1% y-o-y in May from 4.2% in April, the second straight month of deceleration. We expect inflationary pressures easing gradually in the coming months, which should translate to the KCC allaying pressure on South Korean mobile operators to reduce tariff rates.
