  FCC - Third Generation Wireless Systems
3G systems will provide access, by means of one or more radio links, to a wide range of telecommunication services supported by the fixed telecommunication networks and to other services that are specific to mobile users.
Key features of 3G systems are a high degree of commonality of design worldwide, compatibility of services, use of small pocket terminals with worldwide roaming capability, Internet and other multimedia applications, and a wide range of services and terminals.
These actions were taken to enable the Commission to identify spectrum for 3G systems by July 2001 and auction licenses by September 30, 2002.

Demand for 3G services is then expected to rise quickly, with around 70 per cent - 240 million - of all Western European mobile subscribers using a 3G-enabled device by the end of 2009.
According to Analysys the relatively slow initial growth of 3G subscribers can be attributed to three key factors - operators have experienced problems in sourcing 3G handsets, 3G networks are restricted to major built-up areas, and major operators are focusing on getting a return from their GPRS investments.
Dajes notes that 3G handset design has been "widely criticised by operators with complaints that their size, appearance, and battery life will not be acceptable to customers who, over the last few years, have seen huge innovation in GSM handsets.

 The unofficial independent imode FAQ - 12. FOMA: 3G mobile
At this time there are three parallel 3G networks in operation in Japan: NTT DoCoMo and Vodafone operate 3G networks based on the wCDMA standard, while KDDI / AU operates a network based on CDMA 2000-1x technology which has recently been upgraded regionally to CDMA2000 1xEV-DO with download rates of 2.4 Mbps.
The main reason for the relatively early (compared to Europe and US) introduction of 3G broadband in Japan, is that Japan has a high density of cellular phone users and the band width is in 2G "is running out".
DoCoMo rolled out 3G (FOMA) services in autumn 2001 to the general public in the Tokyo area, and services are now being extended to cover most of the populated areas of Japan.
