A customer enters SK Telecom’s store in Myeong-dong, central Seoul, on Wednesday. The nation’s No.1 mobile carrier will have sales suspended for a week starting today by the Korea Communication Commission for providing excessive subsidies on smartphone purchases made in March. SK Telecom was accused of giving an average 228,000 won ($192) of additional subsidies to over 2,000 customers on top of the legal limit subsidy of 330,000 won. The mobile carrier was fined 23.5 billion won. Today marks the first anniversary of the enactment of the Mobile Device Distribution Act, which capped subsidies. [NEWSIS]
