NTT DoCoMo's 3G FOMA service to be temporarily available in Athens
Posted on 16-Jul-2004 23:20. | Tags Filed under: News.

NTT DoCoMo has announced that it will set up temporary 3G FOMA base stations in Athens, Greece from 30 July to 30 September 2004 enabling FOMA subscribers attending the competition to enjoy the service with the same handsets they are currently using in Japan. DoCoMo expects a heavy influx of Japanese visitors to Athens during this period, providing a superb opportunity for DoCoMo to demonstrate its FOMA service in an international context.

The FOMA base stations set up within the city will be connected to DoCoMo's FOMA network in Japan via a private international line. All FOMA subscribers visiting Athens will be able to use their current FOMA handsets at no extra charge for services such as voice calling, video calling, and i-mode mobile internet inside the temporarily established service area in the city. All communication charges will be applied as if calls originated from Tokyo and were placed at Japan Standard Time.
