Late last year, LG U+ assumed management of CATV services in Korea from Army and Family MWR, significantly reducing direct expense to the military while paving the way for service members to enjoy more program options, digital features and upgraded signal quality over the longer term.
LG U+, which already serves the U.S. military community through Exchange contracts for high-speed internet and mobile communications, has plans to invest in technical infrastructure upgrades that will pave the way for future digital features.
