DoCoMo Adds "3" Hong Kong to FOMA "World Call" Videophone Calls
Posted: 29-Jan-2004 [Source: NTT DoCoMo]

[Beginning February 6, FOMA customers will be able to exchange videophone calls with "3" customers in Hong Kong having compatible W-CDMA service.]

Tokyo -- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. announced today that Japanese customers of its 3G FOMA-based WORLD CALL service will be able to exchange videophone calls with customers of compatible 3G / W-CDMA services offered by 3 HK Limited in Hong Kong beginning February 6.

To make a video call to Hong Kong, DoCoMo subscribers simply dial 009130-010-852 followed by the local mobile number of the 3 HK user. The cost is 44 yen per 10 seconds or 264 yen per minute*.

Users can also dial into any private LANs in Hong Kong for 64 kbps data transmissions.

FOMA customers in Japan have been enjoying similar services with customers of Hutchison 3G UK in the United Kingdom since last October. DoCoMo is continuing to expand its WORLD CALL videophone call service by leveraging W-CDMA technology, an international standard for 3G mobile telecommunications.

*Transmission charges are calculated in 10-seconds increments, regardless of the time the call is placed or the user's billing plan. Free monthly communications allowances and special discounts do not apply. For the customer's protection, DoCoMo sets usage limits on WORLD CALL usage.
