Infonet and Korea Telecom In Network Pact

Taping into the growing Asian Internet market, global network services provider Infonet Services Corp. today announced an agreement with Korea Telecom.

The agreement calls for Korea Telecom to market and support El Segundo, CA-based Infonet's World Network to multi-national enterprises located in Korea. The World Network application features global connectivity services tailored to address the data communications requirements of multi-national enterprises, accessible in more than 180 countries.

Korea Telecom said it will provide local, in-country support to multi-national organizations whose offices are connected to Infonet's World Network. It will also assist regional businesses to access Infonet services needed to reach or maintain a competitive advantage.

"The needs of multi-national corporations, both headquartered and providing offices within Korea, are becoming more comprehensive," stated Kang, Byung-Tae, Executive Vice President of Korea Telecom. "The only possible solution for us was to find a strong and appropriate partner--one that can meet the needs of companies operating in our region."
