i-mode services through Telstra in Australia
Posted on 11-Jun-2004 19:56 | Tags Filed under: News



NTT DoCoMo and Telstra start strategic partnership for i-mode services, a mobile internet service that provides subscribers with access to rich content, e-mail, games and other applications and services through their mobile handsets. i-mode is leading the world in mobile internet innovation with over 43 million subscribers and 80,000 content sites in nine different countries.

Telstra Group Managing Director, Mr Ted Pretty, said NTT DoCoMo is one of the world's leading communications companies. Telstra, as the leading telecommunications provider in Australia, believes the two companies can work together to bring a superior total communications solution to Telstra's customers.

"Telstra's wireless strategy is to be the best at providing our customers with services that are compelling, relevant, timely and - most of all - easy to use.

"Telstra will work with content partners and developers, both locally and internationally, to enable their services to become commercially available to Australian subscribers of i-mode," said Mr Pretty.

The i-mode service is provided on an open platform based on de facto Internet standards and in other markets has proved itself to be attractive to content and application providers, stimulating a vibrant content market with thousands of content sites for customers to choose from. The agreement allows Telstra to draw on this international experience to bring a world leading service to Australian consumers.

The agreement with Telstra in Australia marks DoCoMo's ninth partnership for the i-mode service. Other i-mode operator include E-Plus Mobilfunk GmbH & Co. KG (Germany), KPN Mobile N.V. (Netherlands), Far EasTone Telecommunications (Taiwan), BASE N.V./S.A (Belgium), Bouygues Telecom S.A. (France), Telefonica Moviles Espana (Spain), Wind Telecomunicazioni SpA (Italy) and COSMOTE Mobile Telecommunications S.A (Greece).
