Korean ministry agrees plan for MVNO to offer services via post offices

30 Sep 2013

Following on from reports in May 2013, Yonhap News Agency is reporting that approval has now been given for a scheme under which mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) will be allowed to sell their services via the state-run postal service provider. It is understood that the decision is squarely aimed at enhancing the sales network for the country’s MVNOs, with a view to lowering calling rates sector-wide. When the news first broke regarding the proposals earlier this year, South Korea’s virtual operators were said to be offering their services at just 408 outlets, a figure representing just 0.2% of the 20,000 shops in which the incumbent mobile network operators were selling their services at the same date.
