This is how KPN feels:
KPN CEO 'disappointed in i-mode'
KPN chief executive Ad Scheepbouwer has revealed the group's fledgling
i-mode service is underperforming.
Scheepbouwer told a news conference Monday about his disappointment, but
stuck to his belief that KPM will still achieve its 2003 roll-out target
of 1 million users. I-mode is a mobile phone service enabling users to use
internet services at high speed and send multimedia text messages.
Scheepbouwer said new phone models, some of which have already been
introduced, and a new pricing structure should boost i-mode demand.
KPN had 285,000 i-mode clients at the end of the first quarter, it is not
looking likely that the group will meet its target.
