New 3G Mobile Standard

January 5th, 2005

About 26 wireless carriers and telecom equipment makers have agreed to develop an advanced mobile phone standard that will enable users to send and receive high-resolution video instantly, an official said Tuesday.

Cingular Wireless of the United States, Britain-based mobile giant Vodafone Group PLC, China Mobile and Japanese electronics manufacturer NEC Corp. are among the companies taking part in the effort, NTT DoCoMo (news – web sites) Inc. spokesman Riichi Tsutsui said.

Companies taking part in the project will try to raise 3G communication speeds to those obtained by optical fiber — 100 megabits per second, or about 2,000 times faster than dial-up modems, Tsutsui said. The current DoCoMo 3G service is offered at up to 384 kbps.
