Overview[edit | edit source]

The South Korea government established a national policy to promote the deployment of information technology in the public and private sectors with its “Framework Act on Informatization Promotion” of 1987. This Act created the National Information Society Agency (NIA) to oversee the construction of high-speed networks, the use of information technology in government agencies, and programs to promote public access to broadband and digital literacy. The NIA established the Korea Information Infrastructure Initiative (KII) in 1994 to construct a nationwide optical fiber network.
