My company is looking to open pops in Koera and Japan. Before I go
talk to my lawyers, does anyone know what's involved in getting the
proper license and just how difficult is it?
Thanks in advance for any help.
Infrastructure based or not, international or not, most regulatory
requirements on data service providers in Japan were abolished in
2003. I think there are still some perfunctory registration
requirements, which means you'll probably have to hire a bengoshi for
the one-time filing, but all of the old requirements (like filing
interconnection notices and retaining a formally accredited "Type I
Basic Telecommunications Engineer" on staff) are all history now.
Let me know if you have specific questions on Japan.
I'll defer to someone else on Korea...
