Japan Communications Inc., an independent telecommunications company, said Wednesday it will launch low-cost PHS communications services for corporate subscribers Oct. 1 by using a PHS network leased from DDI Pocket Inc.

The new services will enable subscribers’ sales representatives to communicate with their head office via notebook computers or personal digital assistants linked to DDI Pocket’s PHS network and Japan Communications’ facilities, the Tokyo-based telecom startup said.

Japan Communications will also offer separate PHS systems to serve individual users. Charges for these services will be set separately.

The company plans to begin PHS services using leased networks for consumers in the future.

DDI Pocket, a PHS telecom service provider affiliated with KDDI Corp., will improve the efficiency of its network by leasing an idle capacity to Japan Communications.
