Mobile communications services, which offer one way to realize the informed society of the 21st century, have developed rapidly worldwide. With the commercialization of CDMA 2000-1× late in 2000, a high-speed wireless Internet, based on a mobile communication network, appeared in Korea. This will develop into the next-generation of mobile communications (4G) with faster transmission of increased volumes of data in the future. The new cell layout requires the cellular configuration of 4G and the services 4G have to offer a more universal mobile communication service and helps to reduce the digital divide. We would need legislation with respect to base stations and for building the mobile communication networks, as well as the optimization of mobile communication systems. In this study, in order to provide 4G, I examined and analyzed the current laws related to licensing and operating a mobile communication base station in Korea.
