Today April 3rd marks the one year anniversary of South Korea's launch of its 5G mobile network, the first country in the world to commercialize the ultra-high speed connection.
Over the past twelve months, South Korea has seen the number of 5G users top 5 million, across 85 cities and counties.
The science ministry says it plans to continue rolling out its "5G Plus" strategy to foster an innovation hub of connected services and technologies, from driverless cars to smart factory solutions.
South Korea first showcased its 5G network at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics and Paralympics.
The country's three telecommunication giants switched on the network in December of that year, before launching commercial mobile services in April.
