Abstract

This paper deals with the relationship between national IT infrastructure and m-commerce. There have been arguments for the existence of similar relationship such as the one between IT infrastructure of an organization and e-businesses and another one between national IT infrastructure and ecommerce. This paper gives an empirical evidence of the existence of such relationship between national IT infrastructure and m-commerce by presenting resounding success of m-commerce in Korea. By investigating the advancement of Korean national IT infrastructure, the paper provides convincing argument that the matured components of national IT infrastructure such as wide-spread high-speed/wide-bandwidth Internet/nationally saturated usage of mobile phones/mobile phone payment system that connects utility of mobile phones and the Internet constitutes the fertile soil for growth and success of mcommerce.
