New DOCOMO Pacific boss throws 5G curveball

27 Jun 2018

Newly appointed DOCOMO Pacific chief executive Roderick Boss has made the bold claim that Japanese parent company NTT DOCOMO is considering testing 5G wireless technology on the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) and Guam prior to its planned domestic launch in 2020. Mr Boss told the Marianas Variety: ‘They are now talking about testing it here [CNMI] and in Guam. We have an opportunity to get the very best technology. Because we are so close [to Japan] we are able to get a lot of the latest technology before other places do … No specific date yet, but we are bringing the very best and the very latest technology here first.’
