NTT DoCoMo Inc. said Wednesday it restored cellphone services in central Tokyo after services were interrupted for more than four hours, the fourth such incident in the past two months.

As many as 2.52 million users experienced glitches in voice and data communication from 8:26 a.m. to 1:08 p.m., the top wireless carrier said in a statement. The disruption was caused by a surge in wireless traffic on DoCoMo’s switching equipment, the company said.
