Responding to this call from the MIC, ISPs and network operators organized a committee in September 2007 and presented the "Guideline for Packet Shaping" in May 2008 that set a voluntary standard regarding the shaping of packets and the disclosure of related information to subscribers (Japan Internet Providers Association [JAIPA] et al., 2008; JAIPA et al., 2010).
However, the current signatories of the Guideline (JAIPA, Telecommunications Carriers Association [TCA], Telecom Services Association [TELESA], Japan Cable and Telecommunications Association [JCTA], and the MVNO Committee) represent only the side of network operators, and the MIC, which is supposed to represent the consumer side, is only an observer.
Unfortunately, neither the Japanese broadband sector nor the Japanese government have been very successful in this respect; virtually no attempts to improve end users' QoS literacy have been made thus far, other than the Guideline, prepared by JAIPA et al., which has realized some increase in the disclosure of packet shaping practices to end users (Figure 5).
