Posted: 11-Jan-2000 [Source: Nikkei BP]

[PacketOne service launched this week in Japan. Boasting 64kbps via cdmaOne. Phones provided by Toshiba and Hitachi.]

Tokyo -- "IDO Corp. and DDI Cellular Telephone Group both started on Jan. 7 their nationwide PacketOne, a packet communication service at a maximum speed of 64kbps.

"This is a service that permits data communications at a maximum speed of 64kbps using cdmaOne-based telephone services.

"PacketOne is a packet communications service that uses cdmaOne-based mobile phones. The service features a usage-based billing system that determines communications fees based on packets of data sent and received. Even if left "always connected," no communications charges will be incurred unless data is transmitted.

"In order to use the PacketOne service, customers must have cdmaOne mobile phones compatible with the PacketOne service.

"Following Toshiba Corp. and Hitachi Ltd., which have already launched PacketOne-compatible mobile phones, three more makers are expected to introduce such mobile phones by early February.

"The PacketOne service allows users to access EZaccess (provided by IDO) and EZweb (provided by DDI Cellular Telephone Group), two data communications services accessed through mobile phones. It also allows users to access the Internet from notebook personal computers and other devices.

"Both IDO and DDI Cellular Telephone Group are looking to obtain 10 million cdmaOne registered users across the country by the end of March 2001, by further expanding various other services.
