FTTH in Japan Driven by Voice Quality and Prices

FTTH in Japan Driven by Voice Quality and Prices: “

According to Hiro-Michi Shinohara was speaking for Japanese carrier NTT on FTTH uptake in Japan : ‘It’s not so much applications but prices that are driving growth,’ he said, ‘as well as high quality voice.’

NTT packages its FTTH data and voice package only marginally higher than its ADSL-based package — €43 per month for 100Mbps, which includes €3 for the ‘Hikari-denwa’ optical telephone service, which comprises two lines and five telephone numbers (geographically assigned). The ADSL package is €37 per month.
