The KMTNet 1.6m wide-field telescopes have been installed firstly at CTIO in Chile on May 2014, secondly at SAAO in South Africa on August 2014, and finally at SSO in Australia on November 2014. Test observations were performed by using a 4k CCD camera (SBIG STX-16803) for a few months at each site before the 18k Mosaic CCD camera was installed.
