PostPosted: Tue Jun 27, 2006 7:32 am    Post subject: Korea Blocking Service July 1st Reply with quote Back to top

On July 1st Korea will block service because it has considered Vonage illegal in the country. This is due to Vonage not being registered with the Korean government. This is going to affect many servicemembers who use the service to keep in contact with loved ones while overseas. Can someone please email this link to Vonage as the main website is already blocked and I have not been able to access the site for 3 months:

http://www.i-mnet.com/images_in/dacom.html

Here is the email I recieved from my service provider. Thanks for any help you can provide for those of us serving our country overseas.



**Customer Notification Regarding Unlawful Voip Service**



The second largest ISP carrier in Korea, Dacom has requested that SSRT notify USFK about the following information regarding the blockage of unlawful Voip service. Dacom has officially declared that all unlawful Voip traffic will be blocked from all Dacom's network on July 1st, 2006 at 00:00am.

Due to that many Voip services are not legally authorized to provide telecommunication services in Korea and are illegally providing Voip services using major ISP carrier’s facilities, they have been declared illegal by the Korean Government.(Laws & Rules for Telecommunications No. 33” and the “Laws & Rules for Telecommunications No. 4-3, 12, 19, 59-1, 32~2). Henceforth, any unlawful Voip service that has not been authorized by the Korean Government will be terminated by other major ISP carriers in Korea as well.
Furthermore, the customers who are currently using unauthorized devices by the network operators are strongly recommended to disconnect such devices from the network immediately.

Since SSRT is well aware of the large number of subscribers of the above services in the USFK installations, SSRT requested the ISP carriers to postpone the blocking of unlawful Voip service provider several times since last year. Voip service was declared illegal since August last year in Korea. It became authorized for usage on October last year when the Korean Government registered the Voip service. But many of the Voip providing companies are not registered in Korea and the ISP carriers who believe that it's taking a negative impact on their business have decided to terminated those services.

Despite SSRT's numerous attempts to request the ISP carriers and the Korean Government to delay the blocking of unauthorized Voip services, a notice about the blockage of unlawful Voip service to be performed on July 1st, 2006 was carried out on Thursday, June 22nd. We are still in the process of delaying the 'blockage' and would like to make it clear that SSRT has no intention to block the Voip services. Not only will it hurt our business but we also realize that this will cause inconvenience to a lot of our customers as well.

The blockage of unlawful Voip services is not only related to the USFK installations but to nationwide Voip customers of both Koreans and foreigners alike. And we would like to acknowledge the fact that the blockage of unlawful Voip services is neither in any event related nor relevant to SSRT Co, Ltd. It’s being carried out by the Korean Government and the ISP carriers.

Meanwhile, SSRT is coming up with plans to eliminate the inconvenience and damages to the related customers in time of the blockage of unlawful Voip services.

We would like to recommend to the customers who have any of the unlawful Voip services to contact those Voip service providers and request them to register for legal authorizations from the Korean Government. If this will be troublesome, we suggest that you change your service to a legally authorized Voip service. SSRT is more than happy to assist you in finding a lawful Voip provider. In case, you are not certain whether your current Voip service is a legal service, please, feel free to contact or visit any SSRT Telecommunication/Mobile Center for further assistance.

Please refer to the following link: "Dacom’s Memorandum Regarding the Blockage of Unlawful Voip Services" for further information.

For any further inquiry regarding the blockage of unlawful Voip service that will take place on July 1st, 2006, please contact:

this pretty lame. i been here in korea over 2 months and i had this phone for 2 months and i bought it stateside. to see this now really pisses me off. i went into this more and read that koreans here are selling Vonage phones here illegally. thats why the government is shutting down the Voip service. who knows if these people will cut off all Voip servers? but there are still other companies out there that can get us back in phone contact or PC to phone contact with our families.

im not about to be spending 40 dollars for a 200 minute phone card.

i hope corporate Vonage has a plan to resolve this if not i bet they will feel it in their wallets when the stock drops a few dollars.

I would doubt Vonage is going to do anything for you considering you're violating the ToS by using it in Korea anyway.

There is nothing Vonage can really do in this case. A foreign government & their telephone monopoly feel threatened by Vonage's servic and has every right to allow/deny access to whatever they wish -- it's their country, not ours. The only thing you could do is to get citizens over there to protest it, but if the phone co is gov't-run, don't expect much.

Subject : The Official notice of the stoppage of unlawful Voip services
This is an official notice stating the unlawful sales of Voip services and the stoppage of all illegal Voip traffic on Dacom network.

The following are the grounds of the illegal activities of the unlawful Voip companies, Vonage, Lingo, AT&T and etc. These companies are not registered to provide telecommunication services in Korea nor can they provide Voip services using Dacom facilities.
Please refer to articles 19, 32-2, 34, 36, 65, and 70 of the Korean Telecommunication Business Act for the legal basis.

We have confirmed that KT (Korea Telecom) and Hanaro Telecom, Korea’s major telecommunication companies, has stated that Vonage, Lingos and AT&T’s Voip services are illegal in Korea.

In accordance to the above statement Dacom is not responsible for any unlawful Voip traffic. Thus we are planning to discontinue all unlawful Voip services on Dacom’s network. Dacom has sent an official document to Vonage Holding Corporation, Primus Telecommunications Lingo and AT&T Callvantage informing them of their illegal services and requesting legalization of their service.

Below is the schedule for the blocking of unlawful Voip services :l July 1, 2006 00:00 : All unlawful Voip traffic blocked from all Dacom’s network

Dacom is not responsible for any losses associated with the cancellation of unlawful Voip services. We are doing our very best to provide quality service.

Thank you in advance for your continued support and cooperation.
