KT Corporation, formerly Korea Telecom, is South Korea's largest telephone company.

The state-owned firm is South Korea's first telephone company and as such it dominates the local landline and broadband Internet market, serving about 90 percent of the country's fixed-line subscribers and 45 percent of high-speed Internet users. After selling its wireless affiliate Korea Mobile Telecom in 1994, KT returned to the wireless market with the creation of PCS carrier KTF in 1996.

The company's 2009 merger with KTF, its wireless subsidiary, made it the country's ninth largest chaebol in assets.

In January 2011, KT launched unified brand "Olleh" for both fixed-line and cellular broadband services.

In late 2015 former KT president Suk-Jae Lee was charged of breach of trust and embezzlement, allegations which he denies.

What is Net Promoter Score?

NPS is a customer loyalty metric that measures customers’ willingness to not only return for another purchase or service but also make a recommendation to their family, friends or colleagues.

It is a powerful and effective technique, which can greatly increase a company's revenue if used properly.

The main advantages of NPS are close correlation with a company's growth and easy collection, interpretation and communication of the data.

How to understand the NPS benchmarks

The final Net Promoter Score of a company strongly depends on a context in which the satisfaction is measured.

Consider an example: If KT Corporation sends out NPS surveys immediately after purchase, they are tracking their customers' initial excitement and the checkout experience.

On the other hand, if they survey their customers a few weeks after the purchase they are also tracking how satisfied their customers are with their products and services over time.

Therefore, comparing the NPS score of KT Corporation with your own without any further context is not that useful.

What is extremely useful though, is using the NPS methodology to track the satisfaction of your customers over time. That's where Customer.guru comes in.
