TOKYO -- Japan’s biggest cable and multi-systems operator, Jupiter Telecom (J:COM), has defied the recent disasters that slammed the country and continued to add subscribers through March and April.
Subscribers to J:COM’s cable offerings were up 5% in April year-on-year to 2.72 million, a gain of 130,000. Subscription growth was even stronger for broadband internet, up 7%, and telephone services, up 11.9%.
