NTT DoCoMo to Lower i-mode Packet Transmission Fees for PDC and FOMA Services

NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries announced today that they will cut packet transmission fees for PDC and from September 1, 2002, and introduce a new pricing structure for both services.

Currently, the PDC transmission fee is 0.3 yen per packet, regardless of the amount of packets consumed (one packet is equivalent to 128 alphanumerics). Under the new plan, the transmission fee will drop to 0.2 yen per packet after 100,000 packets have been used. Reduced packet transmission fees for FOMA service users will vary according to the number of packets consumed per month and the individual billing plan.

DoCoMo will also revise its i-mode pricing structure for both PDC and FOMA services. Although the total monthly charge for PDC service usage will remain unchanged at 300 yen, the i-mode charge will increase 50 yen, from 100 yen to 150 yen, while the basic packet transmission charge will decrease 50 yen, from 200 yen to 150 yen. The monthly i-mode charge for FOMA service usage will increase 50 yen, from 100 yen to 150 yen. This will be offset, however, by a 50 yen increase in "free" usage that will be included in the basic monthly fee.
