Notes

[Application of Discount]

  • If applying when making a new subscription or switching models, the rate plan and Flat-rate Data service become applicable from the date of subscription or the date of switching models (the charge is prorated). If changing the contract or switching to the model you bring to a shop, the service becomes applicable from the month following the month of the change or switch. If you cancel in the middle of a month, the rate plan is prorated while the Flat-rate Data service is not prorated and the flat rate is incurred.If you are subscribed to Everybody Discount and cancel LTE Plan , basic charges are not prorated and the flat rate is incurred.

[Notes on free calls to au mobile phones]

  • For calls that straddle the 1:00 or 21:00 time designations, charges are waived for the time segment straddling a time designation (30 seconds). Calls to special numbers including the Answering Service (Voice Mail) (1417) are not counted as free calls.
  • Should KDDI judge, for example, that a continuous call for a long period of time is affecting KDDI equipment, the call in question may be terminated.

[Flat-rate Data]

  • WiMAX 2+ packet communication charges are not eligible for the flat rate and maximum charges of LTE Flat/LTE Flat(V)
  • Data communications charges are not eligible for LTE Flat/LTE Flat(V) flat rate and maximum charges. Overseas Double-Teigaku applies only when automatically connected to an eligible telecommunications carrier.

[Regulations of 4G LTE / WiMAX 2+ / 3G communication speed]

  • If the total amount of communications of the month exceeds the data quantity for that month, the maximum communications speed for sending and receiving until the end of that month will be 128 kbps. (The communications speed constraint will be removed on the first day of the following month.) If you apply for the Extra Option, the communications speed constraint does not apply. Data quantities purchased with Data Charge can be used without any communications speed constraint.
  • To avoid network congestion, a limit will be placed on the communications speed for a whole day if you have used more than 6GB over the three most recent days (not including the day on which the restriction is applied). The restricted speed will differ depending on data traffic conditions. The constraint applies regardless of the remaining data amount.
  • Regardless of whether you are subscribed to a Flat-rate Data service, your line may be temporarily suspended if the cost of the packet communications you use becomes high.

[Communication amount notification]

  • You are notified that the amount of communications that you use exceeds 6GB or 7GB (additional 500MB when subscribed to the Tethering Option) with SMS (C-mail) the day after you exceed the amount.

[Optimization of communication]

  • LTE NET series packet communications may perform system optimization to improve the display speed of images and the waiting time before video playback begins.
Image files BMP, jpg, gif, PNG formats
Video files MPEG, AVI, MOV, FLV, MP4, 3GP, WebM, ASF, WMV formats
  • * HTTPS communications and files with email attachments are not optimized.
  • * Customers who do not need communication optimization can contact the Customer Center (157) to have optimization cancelled.
  • * Optimization is the compression and conversion of images to the appropriate size for a smartphone screen. Compressed and converted data cannot be restored.
