Lee Suk-chae, chairman and CEO of telecommunications giant KT, vowed Tuesday to develop more content-oriented revenue sources, saying it can’t survive by only sticking to its conventional business models. He said the nation’s dominant fixed-line operator is going to spend 3 trillion won by 2017 on a “network revolution” in a strategy to offer creative contents and services that run on faster networks.
