NTT is the uncontested market leader in Japan, providing fixed, mobile and pay-TV services and accounting for 59% of telecom services revenue, according to Ozgur Aytar, Research Director at Pyramid Research and author of this report.  Although NTT is prohibited from bundling its fixed and mobile offerings due to its status as a partially state-owned company and the size of its revenue, the company has begun to transform itself into an integrated service provider, venturing into businesses such as healthcare, media and commerce. Indeed, NTT DoCoMo formed a joint venture with MasterCard to offer contactless payment service in more than 41 countries. It expects these new businesses to bring in as much as $26bn in 2015.  To read about what other operators are doing to stay competitive in Japan, purchase the report here.
