Realizing Prosperous Communications-Oriented Societies around the World
Leveraging the expertise we have accumulated as a pioneer in Japanese international telecommunications, KDDI provides ICT solutions centered on highly reliable, high-quality data centers. In recent years, we have actively engaged in the consumer business overseas to contribute to economic growth and improve people's lives in different countries.
Initiatives for the Overseas Consumer Business
Based on its business experience and expertise in telecommunication services including in mobiles phones, fixed-line communications, and the Internet, along with its reliable technological capabilities nurtured in Japan and overseas, KDDI is moving aggressively to take advantage of opportunities in growing overseas markets, including emerging markets. In 2014, we embarked on the telecommunications business in Myanmar in collaboration with Sumitomo Corporation and Myanma Posts and Telecommunications (MPT). As the leading general telecommunications carrier in Myanmar's rapidly growing economy, we are now working on expanding and enhancing the quality of our network there, beginning full-scale 4G LTE services in 2017. In 1995, we invested in the establishment of MobiCom Corporation in Mongolia. This company was consolidated as our subsidiary in March 2016. Since its establishment, we have provided services delighting our customers as the leading general telecommunications carrier in Mongolia. KDDI will continue to enhance the quality of calls and communications and expand area coverage to contribute to the economic development of the countries in which it is already active while steadily working to increase growth in new growth markets.
