Docomo announces $500,000 community investment
Docomo Pacific announced yesterday the commercial launch of its full range of fixed and mobile services on Saipan, Tinian, and Rota.
According to a Docomo Pacific statement, these new products and services “offer choice and value across the CNMI, allowing our customers to connect to the widest 4G LTE network in the Marianas.”
Docomo Pacific said its range of services will allow its customers to experience triple-digit online speeds of up to 100 Mbps, watch high-definition TV channels, and enjoy TiVo—the state-of-the-art television entertainment system.
To celebrate the CNMI debut of these new products and services, Docomo Pacific, together with United Airlines, sponsored the “ONE Marianas Movie & Music Night” last Aug. 12 at the Francisco C. Palacios Baseball Field on Saipan and on Aug. 19 at the AMB Amphitheater on Tinian.
These events featured the 2016 Island Music Award-winning group “The Dolls” from Guam, as well as local artists, in addition to a free outdoor movie for families to enjoy along with free food, drinks and giveaways.
The final installment of the “ONE Marianas Movie & Music Night” will be held on Aug. 26 at the Roundhouse on Rota.
In keeping with the spirit of being one with the community, Docomo Pacific will make $500,000 worth of investments in the areas of education, healthcare, and public safety in the CNMI.
Docomo Pacific is already in discussions with education, healthcare, and public safety professionals to determine the most pressing community needs.
As part of the investment, Docomo Pacific plans to improve telemedicine in the Marianas, help close the “homework gap” by giving children expanded access to computers and online services, and use technology to ensure a safer environment.
Jonathan Kriegel, president and chief executive officer of Docomo Pacific, said, “Being one with our island community is part of the foundation of Docomo Pacific. We are excited that our new ATISA submarine fiber-optic cable system allows us to offer choice and help invest in critical areas in education, healthcare, and public safety. We look forward to working with our government partners to bring these services to the people of the Marianas.”
Dino Manning, vice president and general manager of Docomo Pacific in the CNMI, said that the company is “ready to connect our customers to the things that matter most, with the launch of our online, mobile, TV, and home phone services. Offering this new customer experience has been a long but worthwhile journey that we are excited to share with the people of Saipan, Tinian, and Rota. We invite everyone to join us for the “ONE Marianas Movie & Music Night” this coming Saturday, Aug. 26 on Rota to help us mark the launch of these new services, and to celebrate this investment in our people and local communities.” (PR)
