This paper constructed a model estimating mobile nework externalities based on Ofcom model and estimated externalities mark-up. The main results are as follows: 1) there are 15,626,711 marginal subscribers in mobile network irrespective of its maturity. 2) the value of network externalities ranges 2.1 billions won to 435.4 billions won. 3) the extrenalities mark-up to support marginal subscribers ranges 0.03 won to 6.47 won. This results provide useful implications to policy about mobile network terminations fee as well as externalities mark-up disputes.
