Regarding mobile phone charges, Chief Cabinet Secretary Naoto Kan said on a commercial television program on March 13 that the situation of horosity by the three major companies continues, and that if price competition among each company does not work sufficiently, it is necessary to take measures including an increase in the “radio usage fee” paid to the country by mobile phone operators.
In this, Chief Cabinet Secretary Naoto Kan pointed out that the mobile phone business continues to be occupied by three major companies, and said, “In consultation with the Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications, we have created a mechanism that allows us to compete in a very transparent way through the revision of the law, but mobile phone charges are still high. We have no choice but to review the radio usage fees,” he said, noting that if the price competition at each company does not work sufficiently, it is necessary to take measures, including an increase in the “radio usage fee” paid by mobile phone operators to the country.
After this, Chief Cabinet Secretary Naoto Kan told reporters, “Mobile phone operators are providing services in response to the public’s important public radio waves. In such a situation, it is extremely important that it is convenient, easy to use, and cheap for the people.”
