BMI View: Operators are investing heavily in Internet of Things (IoT) strategies and rolling out their own dedicated NB-IoT and LPWA networks. South Korea's mature telecoms market and supportive government policies will create abundant opportunities for operators to drive IoT adoption, slowing economic growth could weigh on near-term demand.
