KCC ordered to release data on mobile rates

Monday 10 September 2012 | 01:40 CET | News
The Seoul Administrative Court has told the Korea Communications Commission (KCC) to release data on how mobile operators set their 2G and 3G rates between 2005 and 2011. A civic group, People's Solidarity for Participatory Democracy, filed a suit against the regulator last year after it rejected its petition to publish data on how operators determine their fees, the Korea Times writes. The commission refused to make the details public arguing it could infringe on business interests of the mobile operators. However, Judge Park Jeong-hwa said that the KCC must reveal the data in the public interest and that keeping it a secret does not comply with existing laws. However, the judge rejected the People's Solidarity for Participatory Democracy's request for information on operators' assets, depreciation expenses, and operational costs. The group welcomes the ruling and is considering wether to pursue information on LTE service rates as well.
