(2nd LD) Watchdog slaps 5.3 bln won penalty on mobile subsidies
By Lee Minji
SEOUL, March 14 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's communications watchdog on Thursday imposed a combined 5.3 billion won (US$4.8 million) penalty on the country's three mobile carriers for doling out excessive subsidies to smartphone users.

Following an on-site inspection and market research on the Dec. 25 - Jan. 7 period, the Korea Communications Commission (KCC) said it found SK Telecom Co., KT Corp. and LG Uplus Corp. had infringed on consumer rights by doling out discriminative subsidies.
