NTT DoCoMo closing down paging services
Posted on 25-Apr-2005 21:45. | Tags Filed under: News.



It seems that mobile short message services (SMS) and other types of communication are moving paging out of the market. NTT DoCoMo, Inc. has announced that they will terminate their QuickCast pager service on 31 March 2007.

The service started in July 1968. After reaching about 6.49 million subscribers in 1996, the number of subscribers to the service decreased to about 290,000 as of 24 March 2005, prompting DoCoMo to conclude that termination of the service would help to raise operational efficiency.
