LG U+ has completed test of 5G roaming in Japan

Feb 11,2020
LG U+, Korea’s No. 3 mobile carrier, said Monday it has moved one step closer to providing its 5G roaming service in Japan ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. LG U+ said it has recently completed the testing of its 5G roaming service in Japan, becoming the first Korean firm to do so, after partnering with Japanese telecommunication firm KDDI.

Japan is expected to commercialize its 5G service in late March, so that it can offer better telecommunication services ahead of the Tokyo Olympic Games in the summer.

LG U+ said it plans to expand its 5G roaming service in other countries this year. The company currently provides 5G in Italy, Finland, Switzerland and China.
