NTT DOCOMO said at the end of July that its revenues fell 7% year-on-year in the quarter ending June 30 to 1.08 trillion Japanese yen (10.6 billion US dollars), as customers switched to cheaper voice calling plans and purchased fewer handsets.
However, DOCOMO subscribers rose by 2% year-on-year to almost 55 million and its revenue from data services climbed 7% to 391 billion yen, even as cellular voice revenues declined 14% to 490 billion yen. Although capital spending fell almost 7% year-on-year in the quarter to 153 billion yen, DOCOMO is planning to have 20,000 LTE base stations providing coverage for 50% of the populated areas of Japan by March 31, 2015.
