DOCOMO PACIFIC Launches Faster Data Speeds With HSPA+

DOCOMO PACIFIC is pleased to introduce HSPA+ (High Speed Packet Access Plus) on Guam. This improved service will be at no additional charge to DOCOMO PACIFIC customers on select mobile data plans. With faster data speeds, consumers can process emails, surf the internet, interact with Facebook and Twitter, download applications and view Youtube videos much quicker and more efficiently!

Some of the key features of HSPA+ include the following:

  • Provide peak theoretical downlink throughput up to 21 Mbps through the introduction of Higher Order Modulations.
  • Practical downlink throughput at 7Mbps to 15Mbps
  • Tremendous advantage to HSPA operators which is not an option to CDMA operators. CDMA operators are already unable to compete with the higher data performance of HSPA and currently have no future evolution commercially viable for enhancement to their EV-DO networks

For additional information, customers are encouraged to visit any DOCOMO PACIFIC store or call the Customer Care Office at 688-CARE (2273).

“As the leader of mobile telecommunications services on Guam, DOCOMO PACIFIC continuously strives to improve our customers’ experiences through investments in the latest mobile technology”, states Tom Valderrama, Chief Commercial Officer for DOCOMO PACIFIC. “Our HSPA+ service provides our customers with the fastest mobile data speeds on Guam”.
