The number of 5G subscriptions in Korea now exceeds 25 million, three years and three months after the country launched commercial 5G services.
The Ministry of Science and ICT said on Thursday that 5G accounted for 33.3 percent of mobile phone subscriptions but more than 72.4 percent of total mobile data traffic as of the end of July.
On the other hand, 4G and LTE accounted for 62.5 percent of mobile subscriptions but only 27.6 percent of all traffic.
5G devices include not just phones but also tablet PCs, smart watches and smart cars.
5G was first introduced in Korea in April 2019.
