DoCoMo’s 3G subscribers hit 20 million

6 Jan 2006

Japanese cellco NTT DoCoMo has announced that the total number of subscribers to its 3G FOMA network surpassed the 20 million mark at the end of December, just over four years since the offering was launched, up from 16.7 million in September 2005. The cellco attributed the rapid growth to its wide range of 3G handsets, nationwide coverage and its download services. The company expects FOMA customers to grow to 23.5 million by the end of March.
