3G Network


The long awaited 3G Network was released on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. The network run by NTT DoCoMo, was due to be launched in May this year. However it was delayed due to technical difficulties including, unreliable connections, software bugs and short battery life. The service, named Freedom Of Mobile Multi-Media Access (FOMA), is only available in Tokyo and is due to break into European and U.S markets depending upon its success.

So what do we get with 3G?
Users will be able to watch video clips, listen to music, and two users conversing will be able to see each other thanks to an in-built camera. The most basic phone will cost £200 and the most expensive range will set you back £550.

DoCoMo are predicting 150,000 users by March next year and six million subscribers by 2004.
