"KDDI will share infrastructure to keep the cost of 5G networks under control and to differentiate its service offerings."

Competition within the mobile market in Japan is expected to increase following the entry of a fourth mobile network operator (MNO), Rakuten Mobile, in 2020. As a result, KDDI is experimenting with several models for sharing networks and other assets as a way to reduce the cost burden of its investments in 4G and 5G networks and to differentiate its services.

This case study provides:

  • an outline of KDDI's strategy
  • an overview of the business drivers behind KDDI’s sharing agreements
  • an overview of KDDI's sharing partnerships
  • an analysis of the achieved business benefits.
