Japan ended all analog broadcasts in mid-summer of 2011, becoming Asia’s first nation to fully embrace digital broadcasting. Digital broadcasts in Japan will take up only two-thirds of radio bands used by the obsolete analog system. The freed bandwidth will help to improve mobile phone services, traffic information services, disaster preventative measures and a new business of broadcasting exclusively for mobile gadgets. The digital age has gone full throttle and this will dramatically affect how the Japanese nation communicates and disseminates information.
