High-Speed Mobile (Xi & FOMA) Course




In brief
Asahi Net's High-Speed Mobile (Xi & FOMA) Course is compatible with both NTT docomo's Xi service and FOMA High-Speed service.

Xi™ (read “Crossy”) is NTT docomo's next-generation Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile service. The service offers maximum possible downloads of up to 75Mbps and maximum possible upload speeds of up to 25Mbps. The service is available in the 12 major cities of Japan.

>> NTT docomo service area (in English)

NTT docomo's FOMA High-Speed service offers download speeds of up to 14Mbps and upload speeds of up to 5.7Mbps. NTT docomo offers their FOMA High-Speed service throughout Japan.

Asahi Net members using Asahi Net's High-Speed Mobile (Xi & FOMA) Course will be able to make Internet connections with either the Xi™ service or the FOMA High-Speed service. A NTT docomo contract and a compatible NTT docomo communication device are also required and so users will need to pay NTT docomo for charges related to the contract and device, as well as paying Asahi Net for the Internet connection charge.

More information about NTT docomo's services can be found on these Web pages:
