DoCoMo claims ten million FOMA customers

22 Feb 2005

NTT DoCoMo has announced ten million customers to its third generation (3G) FOMA network, less than three and a half years after the service launch in October 2001. DoCoMo attributes the rapid subscriber growth to its expansive range of handsets and increasing demand for videophone communications. As it stands the FOMA service is available to 99.9% of populated areas and all stations of both the Tokyo metro and Toei subway networks.
