North Korea - officially the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, is an East Asian state occupying the northern half of the Korean Peninsula. Its official government is a Communist-led state. North Korea uses central planning to implement its economic and social policies. Its ideological stance on issues such as the mass line, the role of intellectuals, and the source of revolutionary fervor mark North Korea’s government as unique and different from the Stalinist Soviet Union or Maoist China. Its northern border is predominantly shared with the People’s Republic of China. Russia shares an 18.3 kilometre (11.4 mi) border along the Tumen River in the far northeast corner of the country. To the south, it is bordered by South Korea, with which it formed a single territorial unit known as Korea until 1945.

North Korea Telecommunications and Broadband Reports

North Korea Telecoms Market Overview and Statistics Report
The development of the telecommunications sector in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) is seriously impeded by the country’s parlous economic state and government repression of communication. North Korea’s obsession with secrecy has made it extremely difficult to get a clear picture of the sector. Very limited mobile services began in late 2002, but citizens were banned from using mobile phones as of May 2004. The announcement in February 2005 that the DPRK had nuclear weapons will no doubt further prevent the flow of useful telecom technologies and expertise into the country. This report provides information on the North Korean telecom sector.
