Japan Telecom Universe Analysed by BuddeComm in Its New Market Research Report Published at MarketPublishers.com21 Apr 2016 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – The development of the digital economy is having a bearing on the Japanese telecom sector which is deemed to be one of the most sophisticated markets worldwide. Factors such as customers’ willingness to adopt novel technologies in tandem with an increasingly refined interest in the broader use of telephone lines are giving a boost to the national telecom market growth.
Japan’s telecommunications sector is currently served by 3 multi-service operators (MSOs) delivering fixed-line telephony, fixed line and wireless broadband Internet access, voice telephony over mobile and pay television services.
The country’s fixed line sector is led by incumbent telecommunications operator NTT Corporation. However, with a fixed-line telephone subscriber market saturation on a per household basis, mobile has become the key force in the Japanese telecoms market. The focus on mobile has enabled new players to come and grow in the market in spite of NTT’s leadership position in the fixed line domain.
Currently, there are close to 160 million mobile subscribers in the country with most of them anticipated to have access to services via LTE networks by end-2016. The domestic mobile universe is still an aggressive place on account of the maturity of the market.
New cutting-edge report “Japan - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Digital Media - Statistics and Analyses” developed by BuddeComm offers an in-depth analysis of the national telecom sector, covering a number of key aspects of the market.
