[The Chosun Ilbo, December 27 2007] Fixed Phone Line Users Allowed to Switch to Internet

Starting early next year fixed-line phone users can switch over to Internet-based phones without having to change their number.

The Information and Communication Ministry announced on Wednesday that a new rule on number portability will be applied in a bid to lighten household phone bills.

Under the current rules, for users to switch to relatively low-cost Internet-based phone service they must first cancel their number and take a Web-based number using the 0-7-0 prefix.
