January 30, 2017
TOKYO-January 30, 2017-Internet Initiative Japan Inc. (IIJ, NASDAQ: IIJI, TSE1: 3774), one of Japan's leading Internet access and comprehensive network solutions providers, today announced that it has revised the specifications for its enterprise mobile data service, IIJ Mobile Service. Starting February 1, 2017, IIJ will provide an increase to the monthly high-speed data volume, raising it to 10 GB, while maintaining its current service fees. Simultaneously, it will also begin offering new high-volume plans that allow monthly high-speed data transmission of 15 GB, 20 GB, or 30 GB.
IIJ Mobile Service is a high-speed data communications service compatible with multiple carriers, and it is available in Type D-for use with NTT DOCOMO's LTE/3G network-and Type K-for use with KDDI au's 4G LTE network. Its pricing plans also provide choice. Customers on the Fixed Fee Plan L are billed the same rate each month, and those on the Three-tier Pricing Plan L (Type D only) pay one of three fees, depending on data transmission usage.
The specification revisions and expanded mobile service menu are as follows:
With wider use of smart devices and cloud services, enterprises need even greater volumes of data transmission than were once available. IIJ believes that these latest revisions to its mobile service will meet the high-volume data transmission needs of the enterprise market.
