South Korean mobile operators KT and LG Uplus plans to oppose SK Telecom's planned acquisition of CJ HelloVision, The Korea Times reports, citing unnamed KT representatives. "Sometimes, an enemy becomes a friend. The term frenemies will be used to describe the relationship between KT and LG Uplus to take on the SK-CJ issue. KT is fighting LG Uplus in the local telecom market; however, the SK-CJ deal may hurt common interests", a KT official at KT said.
