Established in 1984 by Japan Railways, Japan Telecom (JT) provides voice and data services over fibre optic networks that run along railway lines owned by members of the Japan Railway group. JT is the third largest provider of fixed-line services in Japan after NTT and KDDI Corporation. Its mobile subsidiary Vodafone K.K. (formerly J-Phone) is the third largest provider of mobile telephony services after NTT DoCoMo and KDDI. Vodafone K.K. finally launched 3G services in December 2002 and has struggled without much success into 2004 to attract 3G customers. In July 2004, Softbank Corp took over Japan Telecom’s fixed-line business.
