DOCOMO to Launch Optical-fiber Broadband Service with Bundled Discounts
TOKYO, JAPAN, January 29, 2015 --- NTT DOCOMO, INC., a personalized mobile solutions provider for smarter living, announced today that it will begin offering "docomo HikariTM," a superfast optical-fiber broadband service, combined with "docomo Hikari PackTM" bundled discounts with mobile subscribers. The launch date is targeted at March 1.
The optical-fiber service, which includes Internet access, will offer individuals and companies unlimited Internet connection at speeds of up to 1Gbps1. Customers will not have to contract with a separate Internet service provider (ISP) since they can simply select from among many available ISPs. Customers also can subscribe to just the optical fiber broadband service. By integrating ISP, wired and wireless services, DOCOMO's one-stop service will simplify the subscription process and customer support.
Customers who sign up for the optical-fiber service will be eligible for docomo Hikari Pack discounts with the existing mobile basic monthly charges, called "Kake-hodai Plan" and "Data Plan." A wide range of discounts based on DOCOMO mobile users' data quotas will be available, with especially attractive offers for those with higher data quotas.
"Zutto DOCOMO Wari" discounts for subscribers who have been with DOCOMO for at least six years and "U25 Ouen WariTM" discounts for budget-minded customers up to age 25, both launched last June, can be applied to docomo Hikari Pack for further discounts.
DOCOMO will start receiving pre-applications for docomo Hikari and docomo Hikari Pack from February 16.
