LG Uplus Corp. (Korean: LG유플러스; stylized as LG U+, KRX: 032640) is a South Korean telecommunications and Mobile phone operator controlled by the LG Group, one of the country's largest chaebol. It was formerly known as LG Telecom.
LG Telecom became one of the first companies to launch a commercial 3G service using PCS technology. In 1997, this was followed up by launching the second PCS network, offering greatly increased data transmission speeds.
LG Telecom also offers a variety of mobile services. BankOn is one of the most popular Mobile banking services in South Korea and MusicOn is an on-line music store.
In July 2006, the South Korean government has cancelled LG Telecom's business license for a W-CDMA wireless communications system after the company opted not to develop the technology. LG Telecom will instead continue investing and upgrading in its CDMA2000 EV-DO Rev. A network.
