KT to offer unlimited data service to iPhone users (and others)

In honor of tomorrow's release of the iPhone 4, Korea Telecom has announced unlimited data plans for some smartphones, including the iPhone:
The unlimited data services will begin Friday, when KT plans to launch Apple's iPhone 4 in Korea to compete with Samsung Electronics' Galaxy S, provided by SK Telecom.

KT will join SK Telecom in providing unlimited data services for smartphone users paying 55,000 won ($46.95) or more in monthly service charges.

The carrier downplayed concerns about unlimited services overloading its wireless networks, saying they were being expanded.
I predict data networks grinding to a halt on launch day, followed by KT frantically (but eventually successfully) getting things back on track.
