Products & Services

TOKYO, JAPAN, June 21, 2007 --- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and its eight regional subsidiaries today announced that they will offer WORLD WING™ international roaming subscribers a 20% discount on videophone and packet communications over the networks of Conexus Mobile Alliance partners from July 1 to September 30, 2007.

This will be DoCoMo's first discount plan for roaming services. Other alliance members are also launching roaming discount plans for their respective customers in Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Macau, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan.

The discount applies to all outgoing videophone calls, regardless of destination, but not to incoming videophone calls. Videophone services are not yet available in India and Macau at this time.

The discount does not apply to the minimum packet-communications fee of 50 yen for the first 50 packets.

The current members are Far EasTone Telecommunications Co., Ltd. (Taiwan); Hutchison Essar Limited (India); Hutchison Telecommunications (Hong Kong) Limited (Hong Kong and Macau); KT Freetel Co., Ltd. (South Korea); PT Indosat Tbk (Indonesia); Smart Communications, Inc.(Philippines); StarHub Ltd (Singapore); and NTT DoCoMo, Inc. (Japan). Backed by the strength of the alliance, DoCoMo will continue to develop services that offer customers increased convenience and flexibility for international roaming.
