Promotion of competition in the mobile telecommunications market


On February 13, 2007, with a view toward a more dynamic mobile telecommunications market achieved by promoting new entry by MVNO operators, MIC issued its revised “guidelines regarding the application of the Telecommunications Business Law and the Radio Law to MVNO.” Under the revised guidelines, whether wholesale telecommunications services are to be provided by an MNO, or whether there will be an interconnection between an MNO and MVNO are matters, in principle, to be decided by consultations between the parties, and when an MNO has had a request for connection from an MVNO, unless it has grounds to refuse, it must comply with such request.


Further, in order to carry out an examination with a view towards improving economic vitality and user interests through the growth of new mobile businesses, a “mobile business study group” has been meeting since January 2007. The followings are the main points being examined by the study group, which plans to issue a report in September 2007:



marketing models for mobile businesses (sales promotion funds, SIM locks, etc.);



promotion of entry of new MVNO businesses; and



goals for greater mobile business vitality (mobile access diversification, greater linkage of platform functions).
