DTI Gives Japanese Pokemon Go Trainers 1-year Free Data

Japanese mobile server company Dream Train Internet (DTI).

The home country of Pokemon is still waiting for Pokemon Go to go live. Niantic CEO Hanke said that Pokemon Go will launched end of the month in Japan. A leak said that the Pokemon Go phenomenon would already launch today, July 19. According to report on TechCrunch that plan has been cancelled by Niantic because of the leak.

The launch of Pokemon Go in Japan is now as early as July 20, but that is just an assumption. 

Japanese Pokemon trainer can though already prepare for the launch. Mobile service company DTI offers a data SIM contract that gives Pokemon Go players free data for a year.

The free data is only for the Pokemon Go app and does not apply to other apps and the web. The DTI SIM no count is on sale now and activates once Niantic launches the Pokemon Go app in Japan.

The DTI SIM no count LTE data service for up to 5GB transfer volume requires a one time fee of 3,000 yen ($28). The monthly is 1,220 yen ($11,50). 

Pokemon Go will be huge in Japan. The hype around Pokemon Go is already off the charts in other regions of the world. The home country of Pokemon the adoption will be even higher. This is why Niantic is so hesitant releasing the AR game. The startup does not want to risk a total server melt down.

Server issues have been the reason for the delayed rollout to Europe in the first week of the Pokemon go hype. The Pokemon Go game was released on July 6. The game is dominating app charts since then. There are no current numbers of how many users Pokemon Go already has. Download numbers  in the first week have been said to be 7.5 million in the United States alone.
