Going to take some time before that service is expanded beyond the US borders.

Please come to Japan and fight against two-year automatically renewing contracts.

At least we have some choice now with MVNOs starting in Japan, but there is a need for more competition.

Penfold, do what I did. I just dropped Softbank and bought a SIM from BIC camera, so my monthly charge went down to around 1,700 yen.

Which carrier are you using now, because I checked yahooBB (or something like that) and the difference is almost nothing...especially if you're a softbank user.

Japan cellphone carriers need more competition. They are overcharging because we have no other option and we are tied up with 2 year contract. I hope there will be others who will establish their business here and offer a much cheaper plan.

This is fine if it's a separate company, not more things owned by Google. The Google monopoly needs to be broken up.
