Moving towards 2016 Japan possesses one of the most advanced and largest broadband markets in the world. Much of the success of broadband in Japan is owed to the stunning growth surge that occurred on the back of DSL broadband technology. Since then Japan has focused investment on FttH and on cable to a lesser extent. The faster speeds afforded by these technology platforms has seen both increase in popularity at the expense of DSL, with FttH representing almost two thirds of total fixed broadband subscriptions. Japan has also been an early adopter of triple-play models which provide TV, broadband internet and voice telephony as packaged services from a single provider. This report provides an overview of the broadband market and the available access methods including cable modem, DSL, FttX and wireless broadband.

Key Developments:
Continued decline in DSL subscriptions, down to under 10% of the total fixed broadband market;
FttX subscriptions comprise the majority of the fixed broadband market;
NTT's market share of the FttH market is being eroded by competition;
Implementation of strong government policies over a decade see over 90% of households with access to FttX;
Strong growth in WiMAX sees the 4 million subscriber mark passed;
