The growing popularity of IP telephony in particular has been dealt a blow to fixed-line giant NTT’s traditional business model. The fixed-line telecoms business in Japan has been undergoing a major transformation as the traditional telephony voice services move into decline. Nevertheless, the copper cable of the fixed network remains significant in Japan as it must support the millions of DSL broadband subscribers. Softbank shook up the industry in its bid to become a telecoms giant by acquiring fixed-line companies Japan Telecom and Cable & Wireless IDC in 2004, merging the two in 2005 to form Japan Telecom IDC. This report provides an overview of the Japanese fixed-line network.
