NTT DOCOMO Extends LTE Introductory Discounts

NTT DOCOMO announced a set of discounts for subscribers to its "Xi" LTE s from May 1 to September 30, 2012. Subscribers to selected packet flat-rate and data service plans will automatically receive a ¥1,050 (including tax) discount on their basic monthly charges. At present, Xi subscribers are scheduled to receive monthly discounts of ¥1,575 (including tax) through April 30, so the new campaign means they will continue to enjoy special discounts until the end of September.

In addition, NTT DOCOMO announced plans to throttle users who exceed 7GB of data per month, unless they choose to pay an additional ¥2,625 per month for each additional 2GB increment. This plan goes into effect on October 1.
