Important Notes


Charges
  • Should this WiMAX service be cancelled in the opening month, regardless of the campaign being offered the Initial Setup charge, Data Communication Charge and one month's Monthly Charge will be billed.
The Fixed Plan and Penalty Charge
  • There is a 1 year (12 month) contract period with the Fixed Plan, with the first month being the month in which we receive your application for the service. As long as there is no change to the Plan used with this service and the service is not cancelled, when the 1 year contract period ends the contract is automatically renewed for another 1 year (12 month) period.
  • In the contract renewal month (the 13th month) it is possible to request cancellation of the service or change of Plan and not be billed a penalty charge. Should cancellation of the service or change of Plan be requested before the contract renewal month, a 9,500 yen penalty charge will be billed. Should cancellation of the service or change of Plan be requested after the contract renewal month, a penalty charge of 5,000 yen will be billed.
  • A request to change the Plan (e.g. from Fixed to Two-Tier) will take effect from the following month.

    Example
    You make an application on 27th April, the Wi-Fi router is dispatched on 28th April and arrives at your home on 30th April, and on 2nd May you make your first Internet connection with the Wi-Fi router.

    * In this example, as 30th April is date on which the first WiMAX Internet connection is made, April is the "Service opening month".

    Application month : The month in which the application for ASAHI Mobile WiMAX is made, either by telephone or on our Web page. With the Fixed Plan, the Application Month is the "1st month".

    Service opening month : The earliest of either 1. the month in which you use the Wi-Fi device you purchased from Asahi Net to make the first WiMAX Internet connection, or 2. the month in which the fifth day after the date the Wi-Fi router is dispatched falls.

    Contract expiry month : Based on the 1st month being the Application Month, the 12th month is the Contract Expiry Month.

    Renewal month : The month following the Contract Expiry Month is the Renewal Month. From the 2nd year onwards, the month following the Renewal Month becomes the "1st month" of the new contract period, and the 12th month of that new contract period is the Contract Expiry Month.

Contract Renewal Notice
  • From October 2016 Asahi Net will send an email of “contract renewal notice” to members using a service with a fixed-term contract.
  • On the 25th day of the month preceding the contract renewal month you will be sent a “contract renewal notice” email to your “@asahinet.jp” or “@asahi-net.or.jp” email address.
  • No application is necessary.
  • *Since the services listed above have a contract with an automatic renewal, you need not apply if you wish to continue to use any of the services.
  • *If you want to change or cancel your contract, a penalty charge will be billed if you don’t do so in the contract renewal month, while no penalty charge will be billed if you do so in the contract renewal month.
  • *To change or cancel your contract, please use the Account Maintenance page.
The Two-Tier Plan and Penalty Charge
  • There is a 3 month contract period with the Two-Tier Plan, with month 1 being the month in which we receive your application for the service. Should cancellation of the service be requested within the first 3 months, a 10,000 yen penalty charge will be billed. Should there be a change from the Two-Tier Plan to the Fixed Plan within the first 3 months, no penalty charge will be billed.
  • A request to change the Plan (e.g. from Two-Tier to Fixed) will take effect from the following month.
