SoftBank to postpone the plan to end PHS service for general use

SoftBank Corp. announced on April 17, 2020 that it will postpone the original plan to stop providing PHS services to general users excluding the telemetering plan scheduled for July 31, 2020 until January 31, 2021. The decision is a result of many requests for postponement from customers, including medical institutions across Japan, due to factors such as the difficulty in the procedure for switching to mobile phones because of the spread of the coronavirus infections.
