Tokyo Taxis Become WiFi-Enabled

In association with NTT DoCoMo, Tokyo Musen[J], an alliance of taxi operators in Tokyo, started today providing in-car WiFi Internet access for free for taxi users on 820 cars travelling within Tokyo Prefecture.   100 of the 820 cars carry PSP Go (PlayStation Portable) as well, taxi users are allowed to playing games with it, and you may feel (relatively) comfortable even if you are caught in a traffic jam or when you come home in midnight after work.

The service is running on a trial basis and available until the end of next March.  It aims at promoting NTT DoCoMo’s WiFi service by appealing its high quality and wide coverage, giving potential cusotmers the opportunities to try and studying the needs of WiFi when travelling on public transit.
