Tokyo - Rakuten Mobile, Inc. today announced the new plan “Rakuten SAIKYO Plan” (translation: Rakuten Strongest Plan), the most cost-effective plan ever from Rakuten Mobile.

The current Rakuten UN-LIMIT VII plan offers high-speed data communication of up to 5GB per month in the domestic roaming partner network area, in addition to unlimited data in the Rakuten network area. The new plan does away with the high-speed data capacity limit in domestic roaming partner network areas, to offer unlimited data in network areas nationwide. In line with this change, data charging, data balance notifications and data high-speed mode functions will be discontinued in domestic roaming partner network areas.
