Tokyo, Mar 22, 2012 - (JCN Newswire) - NTT DOCOMO, INC., Japan's leading mobile operator and provider of integrated services centered on mobility, announced today that subscribers to Xi(R) (pronounced "crossy"), the company's extra-high-speed LTE mobile service offering a maximum downlink of 75 Mbps, surpassed two million on March 18.
Xi launched on December 24, 2010 and reached one million subscribers one year later on December 25, 2011. Since then, subscriptions have doubled to two million in just three months, propelled by the introduction of the first Xi-compatible smartphones in November 2011.
