NTT DOCOMO Ekes Out Some Growth
NTT DOCOMO said that its operating revenues in the quarter ending June 30th rose 0.4% year-on-year to 1.09 trillion Japanese yen (12.6 billion US dollars) - the first increase in three years. Cellular service revenues actually fell 2% to 864 billion yen, but the Japanese operator sold 6% more handsets that in the same quarter of 2009.
DOCOMO said the growth of its ARPU from packet data services is accelerating thanks to an aggressive promotion. It added that it now has 5 million users for its i-concier service, which provides subscribers with real-time information about travel, weather and local amenities. By August 2010, the operator plans to roll out a system that will enable small businesses to easily deliver content through the service. source: NTT DOCOMO presentation
