Products & Services

TOKYO, JAPAN, February 27, 2008 --- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries announced today that the company will revise upward the i-mode™ Usage Charge from 210 yen to 315 yen per month (including tax) for both FOMA™ and mova™ users, effective June 1, 2008. Packet transmission charges will remain unchanged.

The revision will allow DoCoMo to continue providing user-friendly basic services, including an ever-expanding selection of free-i-mode pages and a safe, secure browsing environment featuring spam protection and internet filtering for underage users.

The revision will also cover costs arising from the significant increase in data communication volume that has been sparked by a new trend in mobile internet lifestyles: users downloading a huge number of large files (such as movies and music) with highly functional handsets.

DoCoMo has been offering lower monthly charges for mobile internet service compared to other Japanese mobile phone operators while providing users with an efficient network delivering fast, economical downloads. By further developing its infrastructure and services, DoCoMo intends to continue delivering a positive mobile lifestyle experience to millions of i-mode users.
