How Cheap Can Phone Service Get in Korea?

Here’s a conversation my wife had this morning with our phone service provider. 

“Hi, I’m calling about our phone service. I’d like to know
why you charge us $2.75/month for a basic charge? Other companies provide this
free. It really feels like our total monthly bill of $12 is so expensive… And why
did we have to sign a one-year contract? It’s not like you’ve provided any
special service… all you gave us was a free phone when we signed up. You know
of course that the competition is currently offering a $180 sign-up bonus in
cash if we sign up for their Internet service and they include phone service
without any basic monthly charge… and a free phone!”

No wonder the phone companies have been scrambling to
reinvent themselves.
