The ICB3G is an international conference on fourth-generation (4G) mobile communication systems. It was held on May 26 and 27, in Tokyo.
The company said that the test achieved a maximum downstream data rate of 300Mbps with an average rate of 135Mbps in a car running at the speed of 30 kilometers per hour in areas 800m to 1km away from the 4G wireless base stations.
NTT DoCoMo aims to realize much faster communication speeds by adding the multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) technology, which uses multiple antennas, to the current wireless system. The goal of the wireless data rate is as high as 1Gbps when not moving. The experiment will continue until July.
