LG U+ admits to giving U.S. military members unfair favors

Mobile carrier LG U+ acknowledged on Wednesday that it offered unfair favors in providing subsidies for Korea-based U.S. soldiers. The telecommunications firm vowed to correct the practice after Rep. Jun Byung-hun of the New Politics Alliance for Democracy revealed the practices during a National Assembly audit. The lawmaker, who sits on Science, ICT, Future Planning, Broadcasting, and Communications Committee, revealed that the telecom company allowed nine month or twelve month contracts, though most local users are required to have a 24-month plan to receive a subsidy. To cover up the favors, Jun said, LG U+ runs separate data-processing systems for soldiers and common users. The company said that the problem has since been fixed.
