I-mode coverage extends to Italy, Spain
Spain’s Telefonica launched a commercial I-mode service on Thursday, while Wind Telecomunicazioni SpA agreed Wednesday to become the exclusive provider of I-mode services in Italy, DoCoMo said in separate statements.
After establishing a significant footprint in northern Europe, the I-mode mobile Internet service pioneered by Japan’s NTT DoCoMo Inc. is stepping southward into Spain and Italy. Telefica and Wind join DoCoMo’s growing list of I-mode service providers, which includes E-Plus Mobilfunk GmbH & Co. KG in Germany, KPN Mobile The Netherlands BV, BASE NV/SA in Belgium and Bouygues Telecom SA in France. CONTINUE
