Hide / Show Abstract

Japan boasts the highest percentage of mobile Internet users as a proportion of total mobile users. It was one of the first countries to launch third-generation mobile services in October 2001 and the first country to launch commercial services based on the W-CDMA standard. As such, the country’s position as a world leader in ICTs and particularly in mobile communications is widely acknowledged.
