HP launches MVNO – Japan

As picked up on last week, computer manufacturer HP has formally announced that it has launched its own data-focussed MVNO in Japan. Although details are scarce it is believed that HP is renting network access from the MNO Japan Communications (JCI). The new MVNO will offer services on a pre-paid basis, rather than offering netbook deals linked to long-term contracts. It is expected to offer its netbooks from around USD 50 to USD 100.
