Korea Post launches thrifty phone plan with cheap calls

The Korea Post introduced a new altteul (thrifty phone) monthly plan with no basic rate today, in celebration of launching such a distribution service one year ago.

New subscribers will only pay for voice calls, text messages and the Internet they use. The plan has no fixed contract period, meaning that no penalty will be applied for leaving the phone carrier.

Customers who have been signed up to the Korea Post’s altteul phone service for longer than six months will also have their registration fee waived, which usually costs up to 10,800 won ($10.22), depending on the carrier.

Under the plan, voice calls are 1.8 won per second, which is 33 percent cheaper than usual and makes it the best choice for people who make a lot of voice calls, the Korea Post said.
