Docomo ended December with 54.16 million subscribers, 87.7 percent of which are Foma subscribers. Churn in third quarter improved to 0.44 percent from 0.74 percent a year earlier, reflecting the effect of the new discount programmes and handset instalment plans.

For the full year, Docomo maintained its forecast of JPY 4.59 trillion in revenues, operating income of JPY 830 billion, and a net income of JPY 495 billion.
