Phone lock­ing to be in­ves­ti­gated

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - NATION | DIGEST -

The Court of Ap­peal ruled that Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Au­thor­ity (CA) should look into PCCW-HKT’s com­plaint about Ap­ple’s SIM lock­ing prac­tices. Hong Kong Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions (HKT), the op­er­a­tor of PCCW-HKT, filed the com­plaint with CA in Septem­ber last year be­cause the iPhone 5’s lock­ing pre­vented its sub­scribers from ac­cess­ing its fourth­gen­er­a­tion wire­less. But CA took four months be­fore declar­ing it needs more data to in­ves­ti­gate the al­leged breach of com­pe­ti­tion rules. HKT took the case to the CA ap­peal board, but it was re­jected.
