The first 5G roaming service is being launched by SK Telecom through a partnership with Swisscom, the telecommunications provider in Switzerland.
Swisscom, with more than 6 million subscribers, started its 5G network in April and currently provides 5G service in 110 cities and villages, including Zurich, Geneva and Bern.
Customers of SK Telecom with Samsung Galaxy S10 5G mobile devices will be able to use 5G roaming service through Swisscom when visiting Switzerland after updating their phone with the latest software update.
“SK Telecom advanced roaming technology with the launch of the world’s first 5G roaming service,” stated Han Myung-jin, vice president and head of MNO business supporting group of SK Telecom. “We will continuously expand our 5G roaming service to enhance customer experience and benefits.”
