Japanese Mobile System reaches 250M bps
In trials of a future 3G cellular technology, a download speed of 250M bps (bits per second) has been achieved by NTT DoComo, Japan’s biggest mobile service provider. The speed was attained in outdoor tests near the carrier’s research and development laboratory in Yokosuka, Japan. The new system is named “Super 3G” and expected to be launched commercially in the next decade. DoCoMo’s network in Japan currently offers download speeds up to 3.6M bps.
