The other day, it seems that au announced that the number of net additions of subscribers in 2006 (a pure increase number which deducted the number of cancellation from the number of new subscribers) was No. 1. Although it started to appear on the initiative of the MNP (Number Portability) system that started on October 24, 2006, how far has the number of subscribers increased in the end?
In comparison with the net increase of NTT docomo and Vodafone (SOFTBANK MOBILE in September 2006), as a result, it became clear that the net increase in au is more than three times that of docomo, which is overwhelming number I have done it.
Details are as follows.

This is a graph showing net increase of NTT docomo, au, SoftBank Mobile in 2006. Even single au is overwhelming. In November 2006, NTT DoCoMo had a net decrease. Is this the influence of MNP?
By the way, NTT docomo summed up 1,47,7400, au got 4.617500, SOFTBANK MOBILE (former Vodafone) got 696,600, when sum of net increase in 2006 for each company. The net increase of 4,167,500 is overwhelming, exceeding Willcom 's total number of subscribers as of April 2007, 4,431,400.
The background of this overwhelming net increase is that you are transferring subscribers of Tu - Ka of the same KDDI group to au, but that is amazing.
