Japan’s top three mobile carriers stopped or will stop charging customers contract cancellation fees, with SoftBank Corp. becoming the last to decide on such a plan, amid government efforts to spur competition in the mobile phone market.

SoftBank, the nation’s third largest mobile phone service operator by subscribers, said Tuesday it will discontinue cancellation charges in February when customers terminate contracts signed by September 2019. The company does not request such fees for subscriptions since that time.
