South Korea's telecommunications sector is heavily regulated. There is a strong tradition of intervention by the government as an industrial policymaker and stakeholder working closely with the private sector. The government supported the code division multiple access (CDMA) standard in the 1990s as a wireless technology platform for domestic and export market development and this primarily launched the country's mobile-phone industry.

The commercial rollout of 5G services in March 2019 will be prioritised by the government and the industry alike, with concurrent infrastructure build-out for various 5G applications such as virtual reality, augmented reality and the Internet of Things (IoT).

The Global ICT Development Index produced by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) placed South Korea in the second place among the 176 countries it assessed for 2017. South Korea had been ranked first in the ITU index in six out of the nine years since 2009.
