S. Korea: Gov't Expands Sales Network for MVNOs

The government said Thursday that it will allow virtual mobile phone firms to sell their low-cost service plans at post offices, in a bid to lower mobile rates and household communication bills.

So-called mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) borrow networks from existing mobile carriers at wholesale prices, thus offering their services at cheaper rates compared with those offered by local mobile operators.

They can offer cheaper mobile rates as they don't need to build their own mobile networks, a huge barrier for new players to enter the market.
