SK Telecom Co., a leading South Korean mobile carrier, will join hands with information technology companies from three Southeast Asian countries to expand its metaverse business in the region, company officials said Monday.
SK Telecom signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Malaysia's Celcom Digi, Indonesia's Agate and Philippines' Cosmic Technologies, respectively, to cooperate for improvement of its metaverse platform ifland in Southeast Asia, according to the officials.
Under the MOUs, SKT will focus on creating global services while its partners develop locally customized content and support local customers.
SKT said it has conducted tests for localization of ifland for the Southeast Asian market since July and is currently developing Indonesian, Malaysian and Hindi language services for the platform as well as a content curation service for users from different regions.
