SK Telecom said that it has reached close to 18 million (17.94 million) LTE subscribers as of the end of June, making up over 62.6% of the company’s total mobile subscriber base. SK’s monthly average data usage per LTE subscriber grew from 3.0GB in March to 3.3GB in June, showing sustained growth of the wireless internet business, said the Operator.
The largest service provider in South Korea, posted 397.9 billion won (~US$343 million) net profit in the second quarter, compared with 497.63 billion won during the same period last year. The close to 20 percent reduction in its net profit is attributable to a one-off charge related to organizational restructuring.
