Korean firms telco KT and startup zigbang want pieces of Saudi NEOM project

KT, Korea’s leading telecom and IT service provider, and real estate start-up zigbang have joined the contest to get contracts from Saudi Arabia’s NEOM city project, following Naver and a lot of tech players from across the globe.   It is too early to name frontrunners or even a full list of contenders for the mega-scale urban redevelopment project, given that official bidding for its IT infrastructure has not begun.
