South Korea released the K-Network 2030 strategy in February 2023, aimed at building state-of-the-art communication networks and making South Korea an ICT and Internet superpower, and DIGITIMES has studied the strategy to find out what the country is eyeing to do for the next several years.

According to DIGITIMES Research's studies, the K-Network 2030 strategy allotted a KRW625.3 billion (about US$500 million) budget for 6G mobile communication technology research and development from 2024 through 2028.

Moreover, in an effort to secure its leadership in next-generation network communication technologies, South Korea also plans to develop satellite communication with a focus on low Earth orbit (LEO) technologies and quantum communication that can enhance data security.

Compared to former president Moon Jae-in's 6G R&D implementation plan, released in 2020, the K-Network 2030 strategy has tripled the budget for 6G development while broadening the research scope.
