NTT Deploying WLAN in Tokyo
NetworkWorld Fusion reports that NTT Communicatiions will deploy a public WLAN in Tokyo beginning in May. The initial deployment is expected to include about 200 sites. This decision is the result of a successful trial in 20 locations spread throughout the city.
According to the article, monthly service will cost about $12.30 including ISP charges. If a U.S. carrier deployed a WLAN service at a similar price, it would probably do well in places like Manhattan and Chicago.
