NTT DoCoMo to launch WLAN service

TOKYO-NTT DoCoMo, the leading mobile carrier in Japan, on Thursday announced that it will launch wireless local area network (WLAN) service on 1 July. The new service, called “Mzone,” will be provided in nine locations in the Tokyo metropolitan area, including major hotels and exhibition centers.

The data transmission speed is 11 Megabits per second (Mbps), and the monthly charge is 2,000 yen (US$16.21). The service is based on the IEEE 802.11b standard from the U.S.-based Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE).
