Japan to Approve Wireless IP Services
The Japanese government plans to allow three or four companies to start offering high-speed wireless Internet Protocol phone services in 2007, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun reported Thursday. The article said the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications will formally unveil its plans for wireless IP phone services on Friday.
The new services will be attractive to users because they will offer phone charges comparable to those of fixed-line phone services, the report said, adding some cellphone providers may combine wireless IP phone services with their existing cellphone plans. Via: Yahoo Asia
