LG U+ to invest ₩300 billion in new data center

LG U+, a major Korean telecom operator, said Tuesday it will invest more than 300 billion won ($267.9 million) to build a new internet data center amid growing user demand.
The company said in a regulatory filing that it will invest 318.1 billion won for a new internet data center from June 1 until Dec. 31, 2023.
The move comes after LG U+ CEO Hwang Hyeon-sik vowed earlier this year to focus on new businesses aimed at corporate customers.
LG U+ currently operates four internet data centers — three in southern Seoul and one in Anyang, Gyeonggi — according to a company spokesperson.
For all of last year, sales from the company's internet data center business stood at 228 billion won, up 16.1 percent from the previous year.
