NTT goes all-in on 6G for return to global stage

With Docomo tender offer done, telecom group restructures to lift bottom line

NTT said its roughly $40 billion tender offer for NTT Docomo has been completed.

TOKYO -- Nippon Telegraph & Telephone on Tuesday announced the completion of its tender offer for the remaining shares in subsidiary NTT Docomo, a move it sees as key to seizing the initiative for the next level of wireless technology after its slow start on 5G.

At NTT's annual R&D forum, President Jun Sawada suggested that the wireless carrier will be integral to IOWN, the telecommunications group's vision for networks based on optical technology, seen as key to unlocking sixth-generation wireless.
