Bet you what they will do is lower their plan fees but charge you a RRP in full or in installments for the handset over 24 months, so the overall cost to the consumer will hardly change. ( as it has been done elsewhere ). But it will enable both NTT and Suga / LDP to claim credit for ( fake ) reduction in mobile fees.

Maybe, but the big three are actually serious about lowering their fees as they are worried that Rakuten will hurt heir profits once they enter the mobile market next year.

We will lower our price .00002 percent to stay competitive. Thats a Japanese company in a nut shell.

The decision comes after Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said in August that mobile phone charges in Japan should be reduced by 40 percent

Doesn't this demand go against the government's 2% inflation target?

It's still cheaper for my son to call Japan from the UK using his mobile than it is for us to make a call in Japan using our mobile.

Docomo screws everyone... you can get 60gigs of data a month for the same price as 7 in Japan.

I use Docomo reseller Mineo with SIM free phones. Great value.
