Monday 3 December 2012 | 15:59 CET | News
South Korean mobile operators SK Telecom and KT are facing criticism from customers over their pricing of the iPhone 5, reports JoongAng Daily. Suspicions of collusion emerged on 30 November when SK Telecom released details of the iPhone 5 prices, calling plans and payment options just 40 minutes before it started taking orders on its website. KT followed suit 10 minutes later. Fees for the iPhone 5, including discounts applied with the mandatory subscription period of 24 months, were identical for the two operators, according to the report. Customers can buy a 16GB iPhone 5 for KRW 261,600
