KCC allows carriers to limit access for internet calls

The Korea Communications Commission (KCC) announced Friday that it will allow mobile carriers to block access to free Internet calls among other services if deemed necessary.

The nation’s top telecommunications regulator revealed new guidelines for the rational use and management of networks, which states that carriers may control network traffic if it becomes necessary to prevent a data explosion.

SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus will be allowed to control the amount of access users have, which depends on varying monthly packages, to Kakao Talks’ mobile voice over Internet protocol service among others.
