South Korea’s Science Ministry said Thursday it will introduce a set of rules in the mobile devices market to provide better incentives and prices to all subscribers.

The Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning said it aims to enact the tentatively named “Act on the Improvement of Retail System of Mobile Telecommunication Devices” in October after gauging the opinions of policy watchers and industry players next month.

The new rules would induce mobile carriers to provide incentives not only to the users of pricey service plans but also to those using cheaper plans so that subscribers across the board can purchase devices at more reasonable prices. The rules will give the carriers the legal backing to give price discounts, the ministry said. (Yonhap)
