Korea on the forefront

Korea's government realised that it is not that easy to stay ahead of the technology curve when you don't push those in business responsible for the implementation of big plans.

It is probably this intention that they asked their three mobile carriers "to open up their mobile Internet network to outside firms to help create a wireless network as efficient and popular as the World Wide Web."

Besides charging higher fees to outside mobile content providers, they are also limiting they are also limiting users' access to their own portal sites, technically blocking them from visiting other firms' portal sites.

Clearly, these restrictions wouldn't allow information sharing, flourishing competition and innovation. It seems that sometimes companies and business still need to be told that it is better to share information and allow users to switch than to keep them behind a walled garden.
