The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications is revising its new guidelines for lowering the price of cheap smartphones September 17 at 2:52 p.m.
The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has compiled new guidelines for lowering mobile phone charges. A major mobile phone company asks you to set the fare properly when you rent a call line to a cheap smartphone company, and the aim is to allow cheap smartphones to rent lines at low rates.
A cheap smartphone company that does not have a call line in-house rents a line from a major mobile phone company by paying a usage fee.
The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications today compiled new guidelines, seeing that this fee has been set at a higher price and hindering competition.
The guidelines call on the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications to report cost and other settings in order to ensure that major mobile phone companies are paying appropriate rates for renting out lines.
Regarding the fee for renting out the call line, in June, then-Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications Takaichi issued a ruling asking NTT Docomo to lower the fee for lending the line to the cheap smartphone company Nippon Telecommunications.
According to this new guideline, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has the theme of allowing all cheap smartphone companies to rent lines at lower rates, leading to lower mobile phone charges for cheap smartphones.
