Dell to become MVNO using NTT network – Japan

Dell, through its Japanese operating division, is mulling the option of launching an MVNO offering in Japan by bundling its notebook PCs with built-in HSPA cards. Dell has already secured an MVNO licence from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communication (MIC) and will utilise the network infrastructure of NTT DoCoMo for its MVNO service.

Customers will have to shell out around USD 500 for the notebooks, which will be made available from the summer. Dell will also offer a fixed amount of mobile broadband usage and an option for customers to pay by credit card for any additional usage.
