SK Telecom's spectrum position
SK Telecom is not in a hurry to deploy 28 Ghz mmwave 5G like KT is because it has lots of LTE spectrum; SK Telecom is the only carrier currently doing 5CA(Samsung Galaxy S8 required) service which results in an aggregation of 135 Mhz for LTE. So they can afford to sit back and wait until 3.5 Ghz band opens up, which won't be for a quite while 28 Ghz band is available now.

KT doesn't have as much LTE specturm as SK Telecom does and needs to go 28 Ghz fast to keep up with an increasing data demand.

Additionally, 3.5 Ghz band is not available in Japan(Used for LTE) and in the US(CBRS).

Is this the 5G model now?
Is this 5G model now?

Sub6 for long-range coverage, mmWave for short-range hotzones? Starting to seem that way, isn't it.
