Tokyo, Dec. 18 (Jiji Press) - NTT East Corp., a regional unit of Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Corp., said Thursday it will launch a commercial service based on the Internet Protocol Version 6, or IPv6, in the Tokyo metropolitan area on Jan. 6. The new service will allow users to exchange e-mails via broadband communications and talk on high-quality videophones, the carrier said.

IPv6 offers a virtually infinite number of Internet addresses.

Since each terminal, such as personal computer, will be given its Internet address, IPv6 users will be able to make direct exchanges of data, voice and video, without accessing servers of telecommunications companies.

The IPv6 service will be available to subscribers to NTT East's fiber-to-the-home, or FTTH, Internet access service or asymmetric digital subscriber line service.

The company will charge monthly fees of 300 yen per terminal and plans to expand the service to other areas starting in February next year.
