Syniverse, LG Uplus to offer 5G roaming service between Korea and Finland

Syniverse, the world´s most connected company, has announced it is working with LG Uplus to offer a 5G roaming service with mobile operators around the world, the company said.

As part of this, mobile customers of LG Uplus from Korea will be able to access Elisa´s 5G services while traveling abroad in Finland.

LG Uplus recently completed the world´s first commercial testing of 5G roaming in Finland. Elisa Finland´s 5G network is now available for LG Uplus customers, and 5G roaming service has been available on this network by LG Uplus since July 19. LG Uplus, in partnership with Elisa, Finland´s wired and wireless operator with more than 6 million subscribers, is providing 5G roaming service to its customers using LG Electronics V50 ThinQ smartphone in Finland.

LG Uplus has launched the world´s first commercialized 5G service in Korea and is in wireless and wired technology with 13 million subscribers.

Syniverse is using its IPX Network as a core solution to enable LG Uplus´ 5G roaming service. The solution reduces complexity and delivers end-to-end quality of service to ensure roaming and interworking for mobile services, with a secure and reliable network connected to more than 750 mobile operators in over 150 countries.

Syniverse´s work with LG Uplus on its 5G roaming service builds on a long history of collaboration in which Syniverse has helped enable LG Uplus go to market with other industry firsts, such as voice-over LTE (VoLTE) roaming service.
