South Korean ISP Powercomm is expected to be banned from signing up new subscribers for up to five months, starting in October, for the violation of government regulations. The regulator, the KCC, accused the ISP of violating the country’s interconnection rule by having shared network identification numbers with its parent Dacom. Powercomm has also been fined KRW21.7 million (USD21,000) for the practice. It has caused a stir in the country’s broadband market, having signed up 45,000 subscribers in just 20 days.
