Tesco is set to roll out its online home delivery service in South Korea by the end of this year. The South Korean version of Tesco.com will go on test from the first of Tesco's seven supermarket sites in South Korea in November. Tesco.com CEO John Browett said the store based service would follow the UK model, but advanced technology in South Korea meant the web site would be more sophisticated. The full Tesco range would be on offer, for delivery from store in refrigerated vans. Tesco plans to open a further 11 stores next year, rolling out the internet service from them. Browett said: "South Korean technology is far more advanced than that in the UK ­ they have a lot more broadband access. That means the site will be easier to use and more exciting than the UK's." Tesco plans to invest $2.66bn in South Korea by 2005 to expand its business there. {{NEWS }}
