AU and Softbank LTE Band 1 base stations


Here's a page claiming to have collected through the MIC base station information search site information on the number of base stations each of the carriers has active as of August, 2012.

Information on the actual websites of KDDI and Softbank Mobile is apparently nonexistent. If this is correct and not total BS, then SBM has a decent size FDD-LTE Band 1 network ready to go. AU is not only way behind, their stations are mainly in the Kanto area. As expected, DCM has the most well developed LTE network.

Change refers to the difference from the last time this guy checked.

  1. Looking at the figures, AU appears to have a massive number of "repeaters" compared to the others. Not being all that familiar with exactly how LTE tech works. is this going to provide any significant additional coverage (they have nearly 9,000 more of them than Sb in Hokkaido alone - about 4 times the number). Would this also mean that a larger number of people would likely be sharing a basestation.which is just repeated out over a wider area?

  2. Im curious about that too, KDDI 4G/LTE data usage limits is a way too annoying... Is KDDI planning to abolish this with the base stations expansion or what?
