NTT DoCoMo to Offer Flat-Rate Packet Communications for All New 3G Billing Plans PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 31 January 2006


NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries announced today that beginning March 1 they will increase the number of billing plans that can be combined with unlimited 3G FOMA i-mode packet communications for a flat monthly "Pake-Houdai" rate of 4,095 yen (including tax).

At present, flat-rate packet communications charges are available only for FOMA billing plans starting from the Type M Plan at 6,930 yen (including tax). Under the new scheme, however, all new FOMA billing plans introduced from November 1, 2005 will offer the option of unlimited i-mode packet communications for a flat monthly rate. Plans introduced prior to November 1, 2005, the FOMA Plan 39, FOMA Plan 49, Limit Plus, and non i-mode data communications billing plans (FOMA Data Plan and FOMA Ubiquitous Plan) may not be combined with "Pake-Houdai."

The Pake-Houdai rate was introduced on June 1, 2004, and is being used by approximately 4.45 million FOMA subscribers in Japan as of the end of December 2005.
