South Korean Carrier Commits to Rebuilding Ukrainian Telecom Infrastructure


Korea’s KT Corporation is advising Ukraine on upgrading telecommunication infrastructure and introducing ways of managing energy efficiency while operating key government networks. The Korea Times reported that on Wednesday, Moon Sung-uk, head of KT’s Global Business, visited Kyiv and presented a plan for rebuilding the country’s communications infrastructure. 

Some of Moon’s recommendations to the war-torn country included:

  • Establishing public safety-LTE, a government-exclusive disaster-responsive communication network with high security.
  • Building a military-broadband convergence network, allowing stable communication and 24-hour situation room monitoring. 
  • Introducing a government-exclusive internet data center to manage critical data for national security purposes.
  • Utilizing KT’s advanced metering infrastructure to address power shortage issues.

The Korea Times reported that 18 state-run and private firms — including KT — have joined a delegation of One Team Korea to assist with postwar reconstruction in Ukraine.
