Notes

[Application of Discount]

  • Charges are prorated from the day of subscription. Charges are prorated in cases where you cancel a contract before the end of a month.

[Restrictions of 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 may be placed on the communication speed for a whole day if the total amount of communication used exceeds 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 restriction 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]

<When using Data Charge>

  • When the total remaining monthly data quantity and purchased data quantity within the month comes to 5%, 1% or lower, you will receive a notification. It is sent to the email address registered with au ID.

[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.
