High-speed Data Transfer Switch Function Added to Rakuten Mobile SIM App

In addition, Rakuten Mobile has also added a new function to the Rakuten SIM App on February 28, 2015 that allows the user to switch between high-speed and low-speed data transfer on their devices. Until now, high-speed data transfer was automatically switched to low-speed data transfer once the user passed the high-speed data volume limit. However, with the new function, the user can select which data transmission speed to use according to their needs, allowing them to switch to low-speed data transfer at times when high-speed data transfer is not required, such as when sending e-mail or browsing the internet, helping to conserve the amount of high-speed data transfer used.

Fusion is committed to continually improving its services to ensure that it meets the needs of its customers.
