DoCoMo eyes 2010 launch for low-cost mobile broadband service

4 Jan 2007

Japan’s leading mobile operator by subscribers, NTT DoCoMo, plans to launch a high speed, low-cost mobile broadband service in 2010. The so-called ‘Super 3G’ service will require it to upgrade its existing networks, but on completion will provide transmission speeds of up to 100Mbps – many times faster than the current speeds provided by DoCoMo for its existing services. Tests on the new network are due to begin this year.
