SoftBank Slowly Releases Details

September 19th, 2012

One detail: they will (finally) allow tethering. Not immediately, but from Jan. 15 of next year. And it’ll cost an extra $6 per month, or thereabouts. And there will be a 7 GB limit. The first two years may be free, but what the “first two years” may mean is open to interpretation—is this only available for new subscribers? It doesn’t look like it, but I would not be very surprised if that was their meaning. In the past, they’ve offered nice stuff only as incentives, like gifts for people coming to SoftBank for the first time, or in exchange for extensions of contracts. You will be able to apply for the two-year fee waiver when the iPhone 5 comes out, so we’ll see.

I’ll also have to figure out what 7GB a month feels like; that’s 233 MB a day on average. That would be something like a couple of Apple Trailer downloads—but if you avoid heavy stuff like that, I imagine you could do just fine with that amount.

    related to my comment in the previous thread, but I’ll leave this here to keep me from going to 5 in that:
