Libuda : Rakuten ist bei 5G voll dabei
TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's telcos were formally allocated 5G spectrum by regulators on Wednesday, a major milestone ahead of the launch of high-speed wireless services next spring.
The three big carriers - NTT Docomo, KDDI and SoftBank Corp - along with new entrant Rakuten Inc all received spectrum from the telecoms ministry.
The technology, which can provide data speeds at least 20 times faster than 4G, is seen as essential for emerging technologies from self-driving cars and augmented reality to smart cities and artificial intelligence.

Libuda : Rakuten TV greift Netflix und Amazon an
Rakuten TV wants to become a true global alternative to Amazon Video and Netflix, and has ambitious plans to help that become a reality. Along with a rapid expansion into new countries, it seems 8K content is also part of the strategy.
Jacinto Roca, Rakuten TV CEO, told Variety that the company hopes to offer 8K movies "in the second half of this year". The service already offers HD and 4K content.
Rakuten TV has also launched in more than 30 new territories today and announced new partnerships with TV manufacturers including Hisense, LG, Philips and Samsung. Those partnerships will see a dedicated Rakuten TV button appear on selected TV remote controls.
Amazon Video and Netflix have grown quickly to dominate online viewing, with rapid adoption of new TV technologies such as 4K and HDR proving to be a significant part of both services' strategies. Now it seems Rakuten wants to grab a piece of the pie by jumping feet first into 8K video.

Libuda : Rakuten: Capable of delivering 5G
Apr 10, 2019
The telecom ministry allocated mobile phone frequency bands for superfast 5G services to three major mobile carriers and the e-commerce giant Rakuten Inc. on Wednesday, ahead of an expected full-scale launch in 2020.
After reviewing operational plans by NTT Docomo Inc., KDDI Corp., SoftBank Corp. and Rakuten, an advisory council to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications approved the allocation of 5G frequencies. After conducting trials later this year, the mobile phone carriers plan to start a commercial rollout from 2020, with the 5G technology enabling users to send and receive data some 100 times faster than the current 4G networks allow.
Rakuten plans to begin running 4G services in October while constructing a network that is capable of delivering 5G telecommunications.

Japan's Richest 2019: Rakuten's Mikitani Bets $5.5 Billion To Shake Up Telecom Industry
Rakuten CEO Hiroshi Mikitani doesn’t shy away from risks. His $5.5 billion bet is his biggest one to date: a startup using a new technology to disrupt the nation’s entrenched, three-way mobile phone oligopoly. Rakuten wants to build a new telecom network in Japan in as little as half the time and at a cost of up to 40% less than what it would take to build a conventional system.
The new service, Rakuten Mobile, aims to attract about 10 million customers over nine years—and 15 million over a longer period—by providing what it claims will be a cheaper, faster and more reliable network.
