DOCOMO to Launch “Xi,” Japan’s First LTE Service
Posted: 08-Nov-2010 [Source: NTT DoCoMo]

[NTT DoCoMo to launch Xi LTE service December 24, 2010. Two data-only billing plans were announced along with plans to offer voice calls and LTE-compatible handsets sometime in April 2011.]

Tokyo -- NTT DOCOMO, INC. announced today its launch of Xi™ (read “Crossy”), Japan’s first wireless connectivity service based on the extra-high-speed technology, Long Term Evolution (LTE), scheduled on December 24, 2010.

Xi will enable mobile data communication at a maximum downlink speed of 75 Mbps, or about ten times as fast as DOCOMO’s current FOMA™ 3G service. DOCOMO initially will sell Xi data terminals for connection to mobile computers, beginning with the USB-type L-02C.

Voice calls using Xi will become possible sometime within the fiscal year starting in April 2011, when DOCOMO will begin launching LTE-compatible mobile phones.

Xi service initially will be available in the Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka areas, with other major cities and regions to be added thereafter.

At launch, two data-only billing plans will be offered: “Xi Data Plan Ninen” and “Xi Data Plan.” Xi Data Plan Ninen, which will require a two-year contract, is a highly affordable plan costing between 1,000 and 6,510 yen (including tax) for up to 5 gigabytes (GB) of data per month. Over 5 GB, 2,625 yen (including tax) will be charged for each 2 GB (details about both plans are attached).

As a special introductory offer, the maximum monthly charge for unlimited data using Xi Data Plan Ninen will be 4,935 yen (including tax) through April 2012.

Billing plans for Xi voice services will be announced later.
