KT task force to plan involvement in Digital New Deal

Telecom provider KT will establish a task force to lead the company’s participation in a 100 trillion won ($84 billion) government spending plan aimed at creating jobs and reinvigorating the economy hit by the coronavirus.
 
The carrier said Monday that more than 200 employees from different divisions ranging from artificial intelligence (AI), 5G, cloud computing and other new business areas will gather to help KT participate in the so-called Digital New Deal plan that will subsidize a wide range of digital projects and services.
 
For KT, the key areas of focus will be building an advanced network infrastructure and the development of robotics and systems for smart hospitals.
 
The advanced network includes expanding indoor coverage of 5G and the establishment of a standalone version of the network.
 
All Korean carriers currently use a non-standalone version of 5G, which introduces delays.
