Using FOMA at Asahi Net

With the exception of Asahi Net's Dial-up Course K Plan, any Asahi Net Course offers dial -up connection time that can be used for connections to the FOMA service. Of course a FOMA-capable cell phone or FOMA-capable PC card is required to access the service, and a contract with NTT DoCoMo for their FOMA service. There is no special application at Asahi Net.


Connections to the FOMA service will be metered by Asahi Net and the total connection time in a month used when calculating the member's monthly charges based on the Asahi Net Course/Plan they use. Any Asahi Net Plan can be used with the service, but please be sure to use a Plan that supplies sufficient dial-up hours for your needs. There is no special Asahi Net application required to use the FOMA service. Please contact NTT DoCoMo about their charges for their FOMA service, as these will be billed separately and are not included in Asahi Net's charges.
