Fellow Canadian and keen Japan wireless observer Sean Bennett asked a question last week that should be thunderingly obvious to anyone watching this market: have a question regarding NTT DoCoMo’s M-Zone – do you know how this differs/compares to NTT Communication’s Hotspot WiFi [WLAN] service? The pricing is similar, though one charges higher sign-up fees while the other has higher monthly fees…
– Cheers, Sean
I don’t have an answer to this one and would agree that at first glance the NTT Group strategy appears redundant and ultimately harmful. Perhaps it’s time to ask for an interview? In the meantime, watch our video program (link below) featuring NTT Communications senior executive vice president Shuji Tomita speaking about their WLAN plans.
