Following the first launch of scale commercial 5G networks early in 2019, commercial deployments have gained momentum with key pioneering countries around the world rolling out commercial 5G services in the last twelve months. Japan is one of these pioneering countries with its mobile operators, NTT DOCOMO, KDDI and SoftBank all deploying commercial 5G services on the 25th, 26th and 27th of March 2020, respectively. With the fourth greenfield mobile operator, Rakuten Mobile, expected to commercially launch 5G services this month based on its unique approach to network deployment, 5G is expected to play a key role in accelerating the digital transformation of consumer and enterprise sectors across verticals and the wider economy in Japan.
