  • What is the near-future forecast for capital investment?

    While we cannot comment on the specific level of capital investment planned for the near future, we can say that it is decreasing due to the completion of the LTE coverage for the mobile business and that we have shifted to the quality improvement phase. Capital investment in common facilities are also decreasing for fixed lines. While the higher FTTH customer base growth vis-à-vis the plan has had some impact on capital investment, we expect the capital investment to remain steady at the current level. We cannot say whether it is going to be around 500 billion yen for the whole term because we are currently reviewing the medium-term plan for the next term. However, we can tell you that we are trying to control depreciation as well as OPEX.

  • Can capital investment increase even more than it has during this year?

    We do not expect capital investment to go over 600 billion yen as of this term. It will be in our future agenda to discuss how much we should cut down.
