South Korea's K-Network 2030 strategy aims to strengthen and upgrade the country's network infrastructure while developing energy-efficient and fail-proof systems with upgrading the backbone network being one of the major tasks.

South Korea has set the goal of doubling its optical communication speed by 2026 and quadrupling it by 2030. Meanwhile, it will also boost the country's submarine cable transmission capacity. Furthermore, it is committed to the R&D of artificial intelligence (AI) chips and energy efficiency solutions for network communication purposes as well as enhancements to failure prevention systems.

South Korea looks to deploy 6G communication via both terrestrial networks and satellite communication by 2030, enabling signal coverage at an altitude of 10km.

To meet the demand for 6G communication to show significant improvement over 5G in terms of user experience and peak data rates, South Korea will also drive backbone network infrastructure upgrade, which has a higher correlation with fixed broadband performance, for high-performance network services.
