As part of its regional expansion plans, Cable & Wireless Tuesday announced the launch of its Internet business in South Korea.
The Republic of Korea's Ministry of Information and Communications has awarded Cable & Wireless Asia with a licence to provide Internet access and value-added services.
The telecom is targetting business customers in Korea with lease line and dial-up Internet acces, IP-VPN service for company intranets and extranets, and value-added services such as web-hosting security services, facility management and co-location services.
C&W Asia is 50 percent owned by Cable & Wireless HKT and 50 percent by its parent company, Cable & Wireless plc.
Last month, C&W Asia formed a joint venture company with Singapore-based Creative Technology Ltd, Cable & Wireless Network Services (Singapore) Pte Ltd, offering IP-enabled and e-Commerce solutions in Singapore.
