On Monday morning, subscribers to internet and mobile services provided by KT Corporation found their phone data and home internet not working for about 40 minutes.
Starting at 11:20 AM, local time, it affected payment systems, which inconvenienced restaurants during the lunch hour rush, not to mention causing problems on the Korea Exchange, disrupting online classes for students and even hospital services.
According to KT, one of South Korea's big three telecom providers, the outage was caused by an error in their network settings.
