The significance is that it is that they provide the internet tunnel from Japan to the States. Without this company the U.S. would not have direct access to Japanese websites. It's only a stub right now because I don't know that much about them besides the one point but I wasn't just going to put that. It's meant as a starter for an article. Also, even if it wasn't that important in the States it still doesn't mean it doesn't belong on Wikipedia Zephalis (talk) 02:43, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Notability increase[edit]

I followed a link here from, this service was brought up because many of its websites are being censored by Finnish ISPs in response to a police blacklist which cited it as a child pornography site. This is flawed because the sites blocked were for things like tea sets and hobbies, they were not even sexual at all apparently. Has there been any response in the news to this censorship from Finland that could be noted here? I am not sure if the issue is big enough to link back there.

Deemed verifiable[edit]

Since links to NASDAQ and Tokyo Stock Exchange are present, the company is deemed to exist. I am therefore removing the template seeking citation for verifiability. If need be, users are welcome to add other tags that to refer to other specific concerns. --Bxj (talk) 03:26, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
