NTT DoCoMo Offers Flat-Rate Data Plans

NTT DoCoMo will begin offering flat-rate data communications billing plans beginning March 1. The "Pake-hodai full" plan will enable FOMA i-mode subscribers with full-browser handsets to view not only i-mode but also websites and videos in Windows Media format with a flat monthly rate of 5,985 yen. The "Biz-hodai" will offer flat-rate packet communications for non-i-mode FOMA handsets at a monthly rate of 5,985 yen.

In addition, DoCoMo plans to introduce a FOMA 64kbps data-card flat-rate packet billing plan this autumn to replace @FreeD, a flat-rate plan for Internet access via the PHS service, which will be discontinued at the end of this year.
