DOCOMO to Launch One-day International Data Service
Tokyo, Nov 25, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) - NTT DOCOMO, INC., a personalized mobile
solutions provider for smarter living, announced today that it will offer a
one-day (24-hour) flat-rate data communications billing plan for customers
traveling overseas beginning December 2.
The service, called "Global 1 day Pake," will vary in cost (980 yen,
1,280 yen or 1,580 yen) depending on the country or region of use. For example,
the cost will be 980 yen for South Korea, 1,280 yen for UK and 1,580 yen for
the US mainland and Hawaii.
The flat rate will apply to the 24-hour period that begins once the customer
activates the service. Activation simply requires tapping a button on a
dedicated app, or dialing a dedicated number. At the end of the 24-hour period,
the packet communication feature in the user's mobile device will
automatically turn off to avoid unintended data usage, providing peace of mind
to users concerned about using roaming services overseas.
Customers can apply for the service at DOCOMO's sales channels, including
docomo shops and docomo information centers.
Customers of DOCOMO's existing international flat-rate data service,
Global Pake-hodai, can flexibly use this service or the new service depending
on their handset or other conditions.
DOCOMO also plans to introduce a roaming service for LTE-based packet
communication services outside of Japan by the end of March 2014.
