[The Chosun Ilbo, April 16 2008] Internet Calling Growing Among Korean Consumers

An increasing number of Korean households are using Internet telephone services, which were previously used mainly by businesses.

Internet calling service fees are much lower than those of fixed-line services, and the communication quality has been improved with the spread of super-speed Internet services.

LG Dacom began offering Internet calling to Korean consumers in June of last year. As of the end of this March, it had a total of 407,000 subscribers.

Since it began business in Korea in October 2005, Skype, the world's largest Internet calling service provider, has attracted 1.5 million subscribers.
