Monthly Payments for Devices

  • Those customers who choose to make 24 monthly payments in order to pay for their Asahi Net-supplied tablet or smartphone will be required to pay the sum of unpaid monthly payments, as shown in the chart below, should they terminate the contract at their convenience during the 24 month contract period. The amount to be paid will vary depending on the timing of the termination.
  • In addition to the payment of outstanding monthly payments, a cancellation charge of 3,000 yen (tax-excluded) will also need to be paid.

Speeds / Supported Areas
