19 Jan 2011

Japan’s leading mobile operator by subscribers NTT DoCoMo is reportedly joining up with the largest carriers in China and South Korea – China Mobile Communications Corp and KT Corp – to consider future options for mutual business opportunities. Associated Press reports that the focus of the cooperation pact could encompass such things as international roaming, the development of advanced smartphones and high speed networks. DoCoMo is under increasing pressure from the likes of Softbank Mobile in its domestic market and has long harboured ambitions to expand overseas, albeit with little success to date.
