"Verizon customers will be the first in the world to have the power of 5G in their hands," Verizon CEO and Chairman Hans Vestberg said. Readers might recall that AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) said back in December that it flipped the switch on 5G in some cities?
South Korea's three mobile carriers and top U.S. telco Verizon Communications commercially launched 5G services on Wednesday, ahead of their initial schedules, as they rushed for first spot in the race to roll out the latest wireless technology. SK Telecom and two smaller carriers had planned to initially launch 5G in South Korea on Friday with Samsung Electronics' new 5G-enabled smartphone Galaxy S10. Verizon was due to roll out the technology in Chicago and Minneapolis on April 11, and said last month customers could use 5G on Motorola's Z3 and a "Moto Mod", a physical magnet-like attachment for the phone.
It provides a chance for South Korean companies to show off their know-how and lay the groundwork to set standards and capture sales in a global 5G services market expected to grow to $123 billion by 2025. “Being the first means a lot because it means we’re the first to lay the entire 5G infrastructure, having overcome lots of technological difficulties through collaboration between telecom, phone and gear companies,” said Yang Maeng-seog, a vice president at SK Telecom Co., South Korea’s biggest carrier. The kickoff coincides with a technology race between the U.S. and China over next-generation technology, a point underscored by the Trump administration’s voicing of concerns about Huawei and its gear.
South Korea will become one of the first countries to commercially launch fifth-generation (5G) services as it rolls out on Friday the latest wireless technology with Samsung Electronics' new 5G-enabled smartphone Galaxy S10. With one of the world's top smartphone penetration rates, South Korea is in a race with China, the United States and Japan to market 5G, hoping the technology will spur breakthrough in fields such as smart cities and autonomous cars, and drive up its economic growth that slowed to a six-year low in 2018. "It is meaningful that South Korean telecom companies are providing services and networks meeting South Korean customers' high standard in speed and picture quality," Ryu Young-sang, executive vice president at the country's top mobile carrier SK Telecom, said on Wednesday.

Moody's Investors Service has revised to negative from stable the outlook on the Baa2 issuer and Ba1 preferred stock ratings of SK E&S Co. Ltd. On 14 February 2019, SK Holdings Co., Ltd., the parent company of SK E&S, announced SK E&S' dividend of KRW671.5 billion, an amount which is much higher than the dividend range of KRW152.1 -- KRW265.5 billion paid during 2016-18, and higher also relative to Moody's rating expectation.
