dl button PDF [86 KB] 20 May 2009

TOKYO--May 20, 2009--Internet Initiative Japan Inc. (IIJ, NASDAQ: IIJI, TSE1: 3774), one of Japan's leading Internet access and comprehensive network solutions providers, today announced the introduction of the economic Flat Rate Plan L to the IIJ Mobile Service Type D and Type DS. Starting in early June, IIJ will also introduce a proprietary USB data communications terminal.

IIJ Mobile Service Type D and Type DS are 3.5G corporate mobile data communications services using the NTT DOCOMO network. Type D enables users to establish a remote access connection using a dynamic IP address, while Type DS assigns a static IP address to connect to routers and other equipment.

The new Flat Rate Plan L is a two-year contract with rates 30% cheaper than the other flat-rate plans with one-year terms. Type D Flat Rate Plan L has a flat monthly fee of JPY 5,700 (including ISP charges), which is the lowest flat-rate plan in Japan for data communications services using the FOMA® network.(*1)

An auto-run feature automatically loads the driver when the device is used for the first time, and it is compatible with the IIJ Mobile Secure Link connection tool, providing a safer, more convenient mobile environment.

As part of the 110FU Terminal Free Campaign, any customer who applies for both the IIJ Mobile Service Type D and the 110FU terminal rental by July 31, 2009, will not have to pay the initial fee or the terminal rental fee for as long as they use the service.
