Counterattack! Price War! Kyodo News here (notorious for its story twisting) has reported that DoCoMo is planning a flat rate service for 3G FOMA at JPY 3,900 a good 300 yen lower than KDDI’s.If it’s true, it’s awesome news for the consumer and cloudy skies for 3G internationally. We are not sure when the flat rates will start, but it must be only a matter of time before Vodafone K.K. responds.
As we predicted last summer, it’s curtains for pay as you go packet prices and a summer of smiley mobinet use for Japan’s subscribers. Green Beer Anyone..?!?
