DOCOMO to Add Flat-rate Data Service

Starting next month, NTT DOCOMO will reduce the monthly maximum charge for packet communications with a PC or other device under its "Pake-hodai" double flat-rate data service to 5,985 yen, down from 13,650 yen (both figures include tax), at selected Internet access points. The revision is for users of DOCOMO phone-tethered external devices such as PCs and handheld gaming consoles at access speeds of up to 128 Kbps (uplinks of 64 Kbps). Other monthly maximum charges for Pake-hodai double will remain unchanged.
