"North Korea has taken a massive leap forward in telecommunications and launched a 3G cellular network but details about the service,
how much it costs and who is eligible to use it remain a mystery.
The new network is operated by Cheo Technology and was launched at 5 p.m. local time (8 a.m. GMT), said Rascha Mohamed, a spokeswoman for Orascom Telecom in Cairo.
Cheo is a joint-venture company in which Orascom holds a 75 percent share and the state-run Korea Posts and Telecommunications Corp. (KPTC) holds the remainder."
