japan universal service obligation background
Japan: Universal Service Obligation Background
  • Total number of households: 51.71 million*
  • Japan’s digital divide elimination strategy deadline: 2010 Fiscal year

Source: MIC 2008

Reference: Shigeo OKAMOTO, Director for Promotion of Broadband, Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC), Japan “Japan’s Strategy for Nationwide Development of Broadband and FTTH”, 11 April, 2008,

  • Due to the lack of sufficient terrestrial telecommunications networks to cover rural and remote areas, a digital divide has grown.
  • Satellite is one of the 3 solutions for digital divide development to eliminate non-broadband areas in Japan (apart from ADSL, FTTH, CATV, and FWA) issued by MIC.
japan uso initiative progress to date
Japan: USO Initiative: Progress To Date
  • At the end of April 2009, Japanese Government prepared for special budget to stimulate national economy
  • For broadband USO program, the special budget is $1,350 million in total
    • MIC prepared for $ 450 million (for 1/3 of initial cost) and Cabinet Office prepared for $900 million (90% of 2/3 which was formerly paid by local governments) to cover 93% of initial cost of service
  • The broadband USO program is open for all types of broadband service, but in actual implementation, 99% of the special budget is planned to be allocated to optical fiber/CATV by MIC’s policy to promote ultra high speed (30Mbps) broadband to stay at the position as World’s No.1 Broadband Country.
  • But, some local governments applied for subsidy (mostly not MIC’s USO program, but other types of multi-purpose subsidy) for satellite broadband.
  • MIC also has regular budget ($100 million) for broadband USO program and considers to allocate the budget to other broadband service than optical fiber.
