In response to this, NTT DoCoMo, au's KDDI, and Softbank's three major companies take the request from the government seriously and are ready to review the current charges.

Of these, according to the people concerned, it was found that SoftBank is reviewing the so-called large-capacity rate plan that uses a large amount of data and is considering introducing a new plan that costs less than 5,000 yen per month.

Currently, large-capacity plans that exceed 2 GB and up to 50 GB are priced at 7480 yen per month, excluding various discounts such as family discounts.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has pointed out that there are many countries overseas where the monthly fee is less than 5,000 yen at 20 gigabytes, and Japan is expensive, and it seems that SoftBank aims to respond to the request for price reduction by introducing a new plan. ..

Softbank plans to officially announce a new rate plan as soon as possible, and it is likely to affect the review of rates for NTT DoCoMo and KDDI.
