DoCoMo Overcharged for Intl. Services
NTT DoCoMo said Wednesday that it will refund up to 32.25 million yen (approx. $300K usd) that it overcharged for its international roaming services in Germany and Cyprus. The top Japanese mobile carrier wrongly charged 100 yen for up to 100 data communication packets in Germany, instead of 50 yen for up to 50 packets, as specified in fee agreements formulated in March 2006. DoCoMo will deduct the excess charges from bills for September, as long as it can confirm the amounts from detailed records of customer communications.
In Cyprus, it has charged 110 yen per minute for international transfers of incoming calls, not listed in fee agreements, since the service started in September 2004. Meanwhile, NTT DoCoMo said it overcharged 106,960 yen for services in Sri Lanka and Netherlands Antilles. It will deduct the amount from bills for September and October. Via Japan Corporate Newswire.
