Archived report: this report was archived September 2005 and has not been updated. By June 2005, Japan had 19.7 million broadband lines in place, making it the third largest broadband country in the world after the USA and China (China surpassed Japan earlier in 2004). Much of the success of broadband in Japan is owed to the stunning growth in 2003 of ADSL as a broadband technology. Japan, long considered a laggard in the broadband market, is living up to earlier expectations of becoming a dominant player in broadband use. Other broadband services such as Fibre-to-the-Home (FttH) have also piqued the interest of the Japanese public. This report looks at the nature of the broadband market, the major players and the direction the market is taking.
