Attention is drawn to the results of the 22nd trial of a lawsuit filed in response to the government's bite penalty for Facebook's slowdown in domestic access.

The administrative division of the Seoul Administrative Court sentenced the court of first instance of a lawsuit for cancellation of disposition, such as a correction order filed by Facebook against the Korea Communications Commission.

The KCC decided that Facebook changed its server access path from late 2016 to early 2017 and slowed down the connection speed between SK Broadband and LG U + users.

This applies to the 'User Infringement Act' prohibited by the Telecommunication Business Act.

Suspicion has been raised that Facebook, which was negotiating network fees with SK Broadband at the time, was deliberately slowed down with pressure cards.

But two months later, the company filed an administrative lawsuit after complaining that it was not intended to cause user inconvenience.

After a year and three months of court trials, a first judgment was issued on the day.

The ruling is expected to have a significant impact on the negotiation of network fees by foreign IT companies.

If the Korea Communications Commission wins, even global content providers (CPs) with servers overseas cannot escape the responsibility of ensuring that domestic users can access them smoothly.

The government is also expected to have an impact on enacting the network fee guidelines.

Over the years, overseas IT companies such as YouTube and Netflix have been unfair because they have paid a lot of network burdens to domestic carriers and paid little.

Domestic companies such as Naver and Kakao pay tens of billions of network fees each year.
