Softbank to resell NTT's FLETS fibre service

11 Feb 2009

The Nikkei reports that Japan’s second largest telco Softbank Corp intends to resell fibre-optic services from the country’s largest carrier NTT (through its regional units NTT East and NTT West). Softbank already offers xDSL services through Softbank Yahoo! BB but has seen its share of the market declining in the face of faster FTTx/LAN based alternatives from rivals. Softbank Corp will start offering NTT’s Flet’s service from 18 February, the paper added.
