KTF will continue to consider the lifestyle and phone communication patterns in charging fees so that the fever for "good time rate products" would continue to be on course. The company also plans to capture the attentions of its customers with the offer of new high-tech cell phones including LG-KV3600 and SPH-V6900, following the introduction of SPH-G1000.
Pyo Hyun-myung, vice president of KTF in charge of the marketing department, said KTF will lead the market with its clean marketing program in June also so that its GPANG and 'Dosirak'music portal would continue to lead the market backed up by competitive services.
