By Robert Wyrzykowski, September 2022

In this latest Opensignal analysis on Japan, we have analyzed the 5G mobile experience in busy high-traffic areas of Japan —  across its international airports and on Tokyo’s Yamanote line, which connects some of the busiest train stations in the world. Our users on the Yamanote line and in these major airports were able to connect to 5G services for a higher amount of time than Tokyo or Yokohama city averages. However, differences in 5G Download Speeds were not as significant when we compared these high-traffic areas with city or Japan-wide averages.

As we have seen in Europe and the U.S. lower signal power levels often mean a worse 5G experience for users. However, 4G signal strength in Japan is comparable to other markets which indicates Japan’s operators face a specific challenge with 5G deployments.
