eMobile to offer fastest mobile data service in Japan

28 Nov 2007

Japanese mobile start-up eMobile, a subsidiary of the eAccess group, will launch a new fixed price data plan from 12 December offering what it claims will be the fastest service available in the country. A report from online news portal Japantimes.com says the new high speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) service will deliver download transmission speeds of up to 7.2Mbps, up from the 3.6Mbps it has offered since its launch in March this year. The new plan will cost USD46 per month – the same rate as its current 3.6Mbps 3.5G offering.
