SK Telecom expands LTE roaming to Canada and Switzerland

SK Telecom has launched LTE international roaming services in Canada and Switzerland under partnerships with Canada’s Rogers and Swiss Swisscom.

SK Telecom’s LTE/LTE-Advanced subscribers will be able to use seamless roaming in all areas of Switzerland excluding mountainous regions, and major cites of Canada including Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton.

The company expects these services to serve as a solid basis for expanding its global LTE roaming footprint to other areas of Europe and the Americas. In particular, since most of the mobile phones released from August will work on the 2.6 GHz spectrum, LTE roaming service will become available in many countries in Europe and the Americas.

“Since launching the world’s first LTE international roaming in Hong Kong, SK Telecom has continued to make efforts to expand its LTE roaming coverage to allow customers to enjoy seamless LTE service while travelling overseas,” said Kim Young-sup, senior vice president and head of Collaboration Marketing Office of SK Telecom.

SK Telecom is also in talks with mobile carriers in Japan, China and the US to launch LTE international roaming in those countries added Young-sup.
