Koreans pay highway tolls via mobile phones

LG Telecom has launched new service called PassON, so that citizens of Korea can pay their highway tolls through their mobile phone.

The system is linked to the “high pass” service of the Korea Expressway Corporation and when a car with OnBoard Unit passes toll gates, the toll is automatically subtracted from “high plus card.” To use PassON, Koreans should get the mentioned OnBoard Unit which is linked with the phone using the standard Bluetooth technology.
