NTT Docomo Lauches Japan 5G Services

NTT Docomo (Tokyo) – NTT Docomo announced today that it will launch its much anticipated fifth-generation mobile communications service (5G) on a commercial basis in Japan on March 25. At the time of launch, the service will achieve a maximum data rate of 3.4 Gbps and in June the downlink will increase to a maximum 4.1 Gbps.

NTT Docomo 5G coverage will encompass some 150 locations nationwide initially and then expand to all prefectures by June. More than five hundred cities are expected to have access to NTT Docomo’s 5G service by March 2021.

Customers who purchase a 5G-compatible smartphone from NTT Docomo will be able to choose between two types of billing plans according to their data needs.

At launch, NTT Docomo’s lineup of 5G-compatible devices will include seven models in the Docomo Smartphone series and a mobile Wi-Fi router. All models will be compatible with NTT Docomo’s existing LTE network.

Going forward, NTT Docomo is committed to steadily expanding and enhancing its 5G network service to create new value for society and to make customers’ lives more convenient and fulfilling.
