DoCoMo to team up with Vodafone on multinational sales

22 Sep 2011

Japan’s leading mobile operator by subscribers, NTT DoCoMo, is reportedly poised to conclude a business tie-up with UK-based Vodafone Group concerning the sale of services to multinational corporations. In a 20 September statement, DoCoMo said the deal, which will see it ending its current associations with Japanese rival cellco Softbank Mobile, could start in December. The new agreement will not affect DoCoMo or Softbank Mobile’s general domestic subscriber base as international roaming services, which allow subscribers to use their mobiles abroad, are covered under separate contracts.
