In settings like the United States, customers often end up with no choice but to pay for the service while struggling with slow broadband speeds. As expected, the customer service department of the Internet service provider (ISP) gets the ire of discontented subscribers.
However, in Japan, it’s a “worry no more” case when a new speed offering makes its users be more excited about a $55 per month prize for high-speed 10Gbps (Gigabits per second) service tier. The new service addresses the increasing number of 4K and 8K video content and the spread of virtual reality.
According to the Japanese Internet service provider, there are chances that promised speed cannot be attained all the time. 10Gbps is the maximum value. The Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) East and West require the customers to have a large-capacity data communication.
There will be a $4.48 or ¥500 added to the subscribers’ bill while requiring them to use a FLET’s Hikari Cross compatible router to enjoy the speed.
The service exists in parts of Tokyo like Adachi, Edogawa, Suginami, Nerima, Setagaya, Ota, Katsushika, Ota, and Itabashi for NTT East with NTT West providing coverage for Osaka and Nagoya.
