16 Analysis Softbank should: Continue to target tech-savvy users & early adopters with high-end devices Partner with organizations such as Universities, Companies and Government departments where real savings can be made for contacts within a “white plan” network. Aim for a portion of NTT Docomo’s less-tech enthusiast but function- focused business users with simple yet powerful handsets AU should: Reduce subscriber churn by simplifying payment plans, especially for data plans Offer a loyalty program which rewards customers for staying with the service long-term, such as complimentary downloads (can also get them interested in trying content services) Entice NTT and Softbank customers by being the first to offer an unlimited bandwidth option for new handset models
