Japan Phone Operators Report Poor Services After Earthquake

NTT DoCoMo Inc., KDDI Corp. and Softbank Corp., the three largest mobile-phone operators in Japan, said their services were disrupted across many regions after an earthquake shook buildings across the nation.

Wireless connections are poor across the country, Atsuko Suzuki, a spokeswoman for NTT DoCoMo said by phone. Phone services across Tohoku, Kanto and Tokai regions were bad, Softbank spokeswoman Makiko Ariyama said separately. Softbank is checking for possible damages to its telecommunications facilities, she said.
