President Moon Jae-in's campaign pledge to scrap basic mobile rates has hit a snag. The presidential advisory committee is looking for ways to cut other communication fees, as scrapping basic mobile rates is unlikely due to strong opposition from mobile service providers.

In its fourth report to the presidential advisory committee on Monday, the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning failed to present a plan on scrapping basic mobile rates yet again. It cited strong opposition from mobile service providers and a lack of legal grounds for meddling in mobile communication fees.

[Soundbite] Ko Yong-jin(Future Planning, Science, Broadcasting & Communications Committee) : "The ministry has been reporting on the abolishment of basic mobile rates all along, but so far it keeps saying that mobile service providers cannot do it."

The presidential advisory committee, which had been strongly demanding that the ministry come up with ways to abolish basic mobile rates, has in fact given up. The committee has decided to handle the issue of basic mobile rates in the long term, and instead reduce mobile communication fees in other ways.

[Soundbite] Lee Kae-ho(Presidential Advisory Committee) : "If we cannot abolish basic mobile rates, we must find something else. That's our responsibility."

The Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning has reported to the presidential advisory committee that expanding discount rates and providing exemptions to low-income users was feasible in the short term. The ministry has decided to introduce universal data fees to provide larger discounts on data use and expand public WiFi to reduce users' burden as its mid-term goal. The presidential advisory committee says it will announce a concrete roadmap on lowering mobile service fees by early July.
