The scheme is expected to be up and running by next year, according to a report from The Nikkei. Number one operator by subscribers NTT DoCoMo has already set up a programme to monitor its own network quality, but this plan represents the first time that all of the country’s cellcos have united to create and implement sector-wide standards.
