Japan's government opposes a proposed 'structural' breakup of Nippon Telegraph & Telephone's Corp.'s (NTT -1.0%) fiber-optic business. Softbank Corp. (SFTBF.PK) has requested this to speed adoption of broadband 'net access in Japan. Rather, the government requests a 'functional' separation, which Softbank claims will be 'ineffectual.'
