Archived report: this report was archived September 2005 and has not been updated. Despite the fact that the Japanese broadband market is dominated by ADSL, Japan is a world leader in other broadband services, as well. Japan overtook Canada in 2003 as the third largest cable modem broadband country in the world. Besides cable, FttH-based broadband services are experiencing very strong growth, with some FttH services charging less than certain ADSL services in an attempt to attract more subscribers. Entering 2005, there were around 9,000 WiFi hotspots in Japan, with companies such as NTT Com and Livedoor busy establishing more. This report looks at broadband services in Japan other than DSL, such as cable, FttH, WLAN, satellite and powerline.
