High Grade a major leap over current service

Jupiter Telecommunications, Japan’s largest multiple service provider, is launching a 160Mbps service in western Japan.

The service, called High Grade (160Mbps) is a major leap over the current top-of-the-line 10 M bit service J:Com provides in the area.

The providers will be five local J:Com Group companies — Cable West Osaka Central, Cable Television Kobe, Cablenet Kobe Ashiya, Hokusetsu Cable Net and J:Com Kansai.

Latter will launch in April followed by the other four in September.

J:Com plans to extend the service to Tokyo, Kyushu and Hokkaido. The company will also revamp its channel line-up in 2008 to take advantage of the faster connection speed.

J:Com had 2.63 million subs at the end of February, up 22.3% over the previous year. It has 1.16 million high-speed Internet subs, up 21.7% on the previous year.
