NTT DOCOMO expands T-Mobile US MVNO to include LTE access

11 Sep 2013

Japanese telecoms giant NTT DOCOMO has confirmed that it is set to add 4G LTE services to its US mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) offering, through an expanded agreement with network partner T-Mobile US. The partnership between the two companies was initiated in early 2011, and designed to target Japanese expatriates traveling or living in the United States. T-Mobile US president John Legere noted that the carrier would initially target ‘400,000 Japanese students, workers and other expatriates’ that already use the DOCOMO MVNO service. ‘It’s a great starting point as we identify future opportunities for collaboration between our two companies,’ he added.
