Business field

The Yahoo! BB service led the broadband revolution at SoftBank, and since its launch in 2001 has enjoyed wide uptake by customers throughout Japan. In addition to Internet access services such as Yahoo! BB hikari with FLET'S*, SoftBank BB currently provides optional services such as low-cost IP telephony services (BB Phone) and Wi-Fi services (public wireless LAN, Wi-Fi Multipack, wireless LAN pack) as well as security services (BB Security).

SoftBank BB also provides SoftBank Broadband Service, which provides our broadband infrastructure lines to the Internet Service Providers, and Yahoo! BB SOHO for the corporate users.

We will continue to provide services that enrich people's lives, while finding innovative ways to capture synergies with the Mobile Communications segment -through including sales of ADSL in combination with smartphones, enhancing Wi-Fi access points (BB Mobile Point) that can be used with SoftBank smartphones, and other such measures.
