Net neutrality debates expected in South Korea, as SK Telecom introduces zero-rating for Pokemon Go

South Korean telecom company SK Telecom has concluded a partnership with The Pokemon Company for a temporary zero-rating service involving Pokemon GO. Pokemon GO players benefiting from the offer (available until June) will not be charged for mobile data used while playing the game, although company officials said that data for logging in, updates, and downloads will be charged. The introduction of the service is expected to lead to debates within the country on net neutrality and the implications of zero-rating services.
