[The Chosun Ilbo, October 15 2007] LG Telecom to Offer Free In-Network Calls

LG Telecom will offer a new calling plan with 20 hours of free in-network calling next month, the country's third largest mobile operator said on Sunday. The new plan, which beats an offer from SK Telecom that allows 50 percent discounts on in-network calls, is expected to accelerate the competition among mobile operators to slash call rates.

LG Telecom plans to introduce two in-network calling plans. The first costs W15,500 (US$1=W918) per month and allows subscribers to make 20 hours of free calls to other LG Telecom subscribers per month. According to the company, subscribers who usually pay around W50,000 a month should save W6,000 per month with this new plan.
