Uzbekistan Super iMAX with East Telecom
In 2007, kt acquired 54.5% of the shares of Uzbekistan’s 2nd biggest fixed line operator, East Telecom, and 60% of the shares of the WiMAX operator Super Imax. East Telecom is a major operator and plays a significant role in Uzbekistan’s telecommunications infrastructure business by providing leased lines, internet services and telephone services.
In Sept. 2008, Super iMax began implementing the WiMax service starting from the capital city, Tashkent, which effectively brought a positive reputation of Korea in the Uzbekistan market. Starting from Uzbekistan, kt plans to venture into other neighboring central Asian countries, to offer its advanced telecommunications services to potential customers within the region.
