Japanese firms to lay out mobile network quality standards

29 May 2013

Mobile operators in Japan have unveiled plans to cooperate on the introduction of industry-wide standards for mobile network quality, in a response to recent consumer complaints. The scheme is expected to be up and running by next year, according to a report from The Nikkei. Number one operator by subscribers NTT DoCoMo has already set up a programme to monitor its own network quality, but this plan represents the first time that all of the country’s cellcos have united to create and implement sector-wide standards.
