TOKYO -- NTT DOCOMO, INC., a personalized mobile solutions provider for smarter living, announced today that it will offer a new billing plan and two new discount services for users of its 3G FOMA and LTE Xi (pronounced "crossy") mobile networks beginning June 1.
The new billing plan, called "Kake-hodai & Pake-aeru," will enable all Kake-hodai plan subscribers to make nationwide voice calls for a flat monthly rate. Furthermore, the plan enables customers to set and share monthly data quotas with family members and corporate users based on the type of mobile device(s) they are using, and the purposes of their usage. In total, customers will be able to choose from six types of basic monthly fees and seven levels of data-quota sharing (21 levels for corporate users).
If monthly data use exceeds the customer's selected limit, they can continue to use data at the reduced communication speed of 128 kbps maximum, or enjoy their regular data speed for 1,000 yen per 1GB for the rest of the month.
The new Zutto DOCOMO Discount provides savings on a graduated basis for subscribers who have been with DOCOMO for at least six years. Also, the new U25 Ouen Discount offers helpful discounts for budget-minded customers of age 25 or younger.
