The high-speed internet industry was one of the fastest growing and fastest evolving industries in the Republic of Korea. From the first telephone line-based high-speed internet service in 1996 to hybrid fibre coaxial to asymmetric DSL in late 1999, access speeds made available to end users jumped from 128 kilobits per second to 10 megabits per second. By 2008, services offered had also evolved from pure internet access to triple-play service, which bundled IPTV, high-speed internet and telephone services. Likewise, players in the industry included telecommunications companies from the early days as well as new players, such as system operators (ˇ§SOsˇ¨) and multiple system operators (ˇ§MSOsˇ¨). With new technologies and services appearing at a breakneck speed, the face of competition was constantly evolving.
