TOKYO - February 24, 2021 - Internet Initiative Japan Inc.

GigaPlans will offer five different data limit levels (2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 15GB and 20GB), each with a low monthly bill. GigaPlans will allow consumers to choose a line on either the NTT DoCoMo network or the au KDDI network, or even an eSIM provided over IIJ’s full-MVNO platform. Up to 10 lines can be set up per contract, and lines with GigaPlans on the same contract can share data, regardless of their specific data limits and SIM functionalities. These options give consumers the freedom to choose the line type and amount of data that fit their lifestyles, thereby cutting out unnecessary costs and offering a better value than ever.
Starting from March 1, 2021, IIJ will also hold an early sign-up campaign, for which existing IIJmio Mobile Service (Minimum Start Plan, Light Start Plan, Family Share Plan or Keitai Plan) customers with voice call contract are eligible.
