Internet Security Threat Report 2014

NTT DoCoMo, Japan's largest cellphone company, will soon allow i-Mode users to access its mobile Internet service from the US and Europe.

The company today said its overseas partners, AT&T Wireless and Dutch cellphone operation KPN, will begin to provide roaming services to i-Mode users during autumn 2001.

At the same time, DoCoMo's compadres will offer iMode to their own customers.

AT&T and KPN will initially offer i-Mode over packet-based cellular technology GPRS. Next May, DoCoMo will launch its next-generation DS-CDMA-based IMT 2000 cellular service, which will eventually host i-Mode, sometime in 2002. KPN and AT&T will offer DS-CDMA connections at that point too, again for both their own customers and roaming DoCoMo subscribers. ®
