SEOUL, Dec. 5 (Yonhap) -- SK Telecom Co., South Korea's largest mobile operator, said Thursday that it has agreed to launch an automatic international Long Term Evolution (LTE) roaming service with China Mobile Ltd., as well as other LTE services.

Under the deal, travelers and businesspeople will be able to use their regular LTE services offered by the two mobile carriers more easily between the two countries, according to SK Telecom.

About 6.8 million Koreans and Chinese traveled between the two countries last year.

Early this year, SK Telecom and CSL Ltd. of Hong Kong successfully demonstrated the compatibility of their two LTE networks. The international automatic LTE roaming service has been available since June this year.

Since October, SK Telecom also has offered a similar roaming service with Saudi Arabia.
