SEOUL, Oct. 8 (Yonhap) -- KT Corp., South Korea's leading broadband service provider, said Wednesday it signed a tentative deal with Apple Corp. to cooperate in providing high-speed Internet services bundled with the U.S. company's products.

The memorandum of understanding signed with Apple Korea calls for cooperation in combining WiBro, a third generation-based communications technology, with Apple's hit products such as the MacBook laptops and iPod media players, KT said in a statement.

South Korea's computer market is largely dominated by services tailored for Microsoft Corp.'s Windows-based computers, lacking online and software services compatible with Apple's Mac models, which run on a different operating system.

The companies plan to sell MacBooks bundled with WiBro service at Apple retail stores and KT outlets at cheaper prices than other retail channels, according to KT.
