NTT DoCoMo, Inc. is the predominant mobile phone operator in Japan. The company's name is an abbreviation of the phrase "do communications over the mobile network" and is also from a compound word "dokomo," meaning "everywhere" in Japanese. DoCoMo provides phone, video phone (FOMA and Some PHS), i-mode (internet), and mail (i-mode mail, Short Mail, and SMS) services. The company was spun off from Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) in August 1991 to take over the mobile cellular operations. It provides 2G (mova) PDC cellular services in 800 MHz and 1.5 GHz bands (total 34 MHz bandwidth), and 3G FOMA W-CDMA services in the 2 GHz (UMTS 2100) and 800 MHz (UMTS 800) and 1800 MHz (UMTS 1800) bands. The carrier's businesses also included PHS (Paldio), paging, and satellite.
