Despite the fact that NTT Corp is the world’s largest telecommunications operator, it faces a challenging future in the Japanese telecoms market. KDDI already has an equal market share of the 3G mobile field, while Softbank rules the ADSL broadband and VoIP markets. Entering 2006, Softbank is the telecom player to watch. It purchased C&W IDC and the fixed-line unit of Japan Telecom in 2004 and became the largest shareholder in Fuji TV in March 2005. Softbank continued its progression into a major telco in 2006, when it purchased mobile operator Vodafone K.K. This move into the mobile market will ensure interesting times ahead. This report provides an overview of the major players in Japan’s telecom market.
