The announcement follows months of concerns that Pyeongchang had yet to secure a domestic sponsor, nearly three years after being awarded the 2018 Olympics.

KT will provide telecommunications services for the Games, including wireless communications and broadcasting facilities. The company is South Korea’s largest fixed-line telecom service provider and the second-largest mobile service operator.

IOC President Thomas Bach, who is scheduled to hold a press conference Wednesday in the host city, attended the signing ceremony in Seoul.
