  • * This is a measurement result of ten cities and effective speeds may differ depending on your usage area and communication environment.

Notes

  • The maximum communication speed varies depending on communication standards and supported areas.
  • 4G LTE and WiMAX 2+ connect to the network that KDDI deems has the least amount of traffic, in accordance to traffic and other conditions. "4G" appears on the screen display of the smartphone or tablet.
  • This service is a best-effort service. Note that the maximum communication speed is not the actual communication speed, but the maximum value based on the technical standards. The actual speed may fall substantially short of the maximum for various reasons including your use environment and the traffic amount even in the service area. Also, communication speeds up to the connection depend on the capabilities of devices.

[About communication speed restrictions]

  • If the total amount of communication used exceeds 10 GB over the three most recent days, the communication speed will be restricted to approximately 1 Mbps during the period of network congestion (6:00 pm to 2:00 am (*3)(*4)). The restriction applies regardless of the remaining data amount. This restriction still applies even if you are subscribed to the Extra Option.
  • If the communication charges become high, service may be suspended temporarily.
  1.  Communication restrictions will be gradually removed from 2:00 AM the following day; however, it may take up to 6 hours.
  2.  The communication restriction will be removed from the point you turn on your device if reconnecting to the communications network by turning on the power of your device after 2:00 AM the following day.
