Japan's Rakuten to delay launch of wireless carrier service by six months - Nikkei

TOKYO, Sept 5 (Reuters) - Japan’s Rakuten plans to push back the start of wireless carrier services by six months, hampered by delays in building out its network, the Nikkei business daily reported on Thursday.

The internet company will offer wireless services to just 5,000 customers without charge from October, when services were originally planned to launch, Nikkei said without citing sources.
