DoCoMo Increases 3G Cell Phone Speed by More than 30 Times

NE Asia Reports: DoCoMo Inc. has developed a technology that increases the speed of its 3G (third-generation) cellular telephone FOMA service by more than 30 times, putting it on par with ADSL (asymmetric digital subscriber line) service.

The technology would enable its handsets to receive television and high-quality music content, which cannot be handled by its current FOMA service.

The telecom firm hopes to have the technology deployed as early as 2005.

The new technology employs a more efficient form of transmission by allotting to specific users frequencies for intensive use. This allows transmission speeds to reach a maximum of 14Mbps, far faster than the current 384kbps. DoCoMo hopes to develop prototype equipment this year.
