KDDI has better Band 1 LTE coverage in Tokyo than Softbank

Via Ishikawa Tsutsumu's twitter.
According to data put together by NTT Docomo, to show how much ahead they are with Band 1 (2100 MHz) LTE deployment, KDDI actually has a larger number of base stations in the 23 Ward area of Tokyo than Softbank. It is of course no surprise that Xi would have the largest number of stations, since Docomo was the first to deploy LTE.

Band 1 is the main band in Japan and the frequency that the iPhone supports.

KDDI is actually in a very good position to cover Tokyo for phones that support 800 MHz LTE, which I assume KDDI will be releasing in the future. This will provide great coverage below ground.
