Japan’s largest mobile operator by subscribers NTT DoCoMo is reportedly planning to terminate its second-generation (2G) cellular phone service in or around March 2012, in a move that would affect the cellco’s roughly 6.7 million subscribers who currently use it, The Nikkei reported Friday. DoCoMo stopped accepting applications for the 2G service on 30 November 2008, having seen the number of users steadily declining since peaking at 44 million a few years ago. With customers opting for its faster 3G (FOMA) network, the operator has taken the decision to phase out the increasingly outmoded system.
