Pager To Finally Shut Down In Japan

Business Top Stories

After almost 50 Years, Japan is lastly terminating pagers for good. The final service provider in the nation, Tokyo Telemessage, declared that it will shut down its service in September next year, as per the media reports. The firm claimed that almost 1,500 users still employ pagers in its service region that wraps Tokyo and various adjacent areas.

Pagers, which are dubbed as “pocket bell” or “poke-beru” in Japan, surely had their day. The small gadgets that transfer short messages through radio waves gained its peak position in 1996 when almost 10 Million units in Japan were in employment. Pagers were speedily overtaken by handsets as soon as the devices became broadly available. Major telecommunications company NTT—the firm that first rolled out pagers in the nation—shut down service for the gadgets in 2007. Now almost after a decade, Tokyo Telemessage is following the same path and pulling the plug on its final consumers.

Speaking of shutting down services, Zebpay earlier declared the closing of its business. The crypto market in India encountered trouble after the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) banned financial institutions and banks from dealing with virtual currencies, comprising Bitcoins.

“In spite of banking and regulatory issues along our journey, we carried on to seek for solutions as we did not need India to miss the digital assets’ bus that powers the public blockchain. On the other hand, the latest past has been very hard. The limitations on bank accounts have crippled us and our clients’ capability of transacting business meaningfully,” Zebpay claimed.

It further claimed that the exchange was not able to find a sensible way to perform the crypto-currency exchange business. “Consequently, we are halting our exchange processes. We have credited your coins/tokens back to your Zebpay wallet and canceled all unexecuted crypto-to-crypto orders. No new orders will be taken till further notice,” Zebpay claimed.
