Archived report: this report was archived September 2005 and has not been updated. By mid-2005, Japan had approximately 14 million ADSL subscribers. Japan led the world in the number of ADSL lines until late 2003 when China surpassed Japan. Softbank, via its Yahoo! BB service, is largely credited with the success of ADSL as a broadband technology in Japan. It further established its dominance as the largest ISP in Japan with the mid-2004 acquisition of fixed-line operator Japan Telecom. NTT Corp and Yahoo! BB are the top competitors in this space. Enthusiasm for ADSL appears to be waning, however, as FttH is being perceived as the hot new broadband service in Japan. This report looks at the impressive growth of ADSL broadband in Japan, the major players and the direction the market is taking.
