A charge plan for smartphone users "sp mode" public wireless LAN service "is 315 yen per month for use of" Mzone "Sp modeBecause it costs 315 yen per month for the contract of itself, the amount actually paid is 630 yen per month.

Although it is said that the line usage fee will be free for all NTT Docomo contractors from October, it is not mentioned whether this free-of-charge includes the sp-mode monthly fee or not. Since there is no contract plan for smartphone users who do not need sp mode, the details of the utilization plan are about to be announced in the future.

Also, it is planned to increase the available space to about 30,000 places, which will be quadrupled by the summer of 2012. With the spread of smartphones and the expansion of data communication users for PCs, KDDI and SoftBank had previously taken public wireless LAN service free in order to alleviate the situation where congestion of mobile networks is inevitable, but the biggest NTT DoCoMo finally follows the competition.
