Syniverse announced that it is working with LG Uplus to offer a 5G roaming service with mobile operators around the world. As part of this, mobile customers of LG Uplus from Korea will be able to access Elisa’s 5G services while traveling abroad in Finland.

LG Uplus recently completed the world’s first commercial testing of 5G roaming in Finland. Elisa Finland’s 5G network is now available for LG Uplus customers, and 5G roaming service has been available on this network by LG Uplus since July 19. LG Uplus, in partnership with Elisa, Finland’s leading wired and wireless operator with more than 6 million subscribers, provides 5G roaming service to its customers using LG Electronics V50 ThinQ smartphone at 5G data speeds in Finland. 

Syniverse is using its IPX Network as a core solution to enable LG Uplus’ 5G roaming service. The solution reduces complexity and delivers end-to-end quality of service to ensure roaming and interworking for mobile services, with a secure and reliable network connected to more than 750 mobile operators in over 150 countries, says the Company.
