Important notes about using AIR-EDGE

When using an AIR-EDGE compatible device it is still possible to make a connection to WILLCOM's PIAFS access points made available for their PHS users. However if you mistakenly do so, you risk being billed exceptionally high communication charges by WILLCOM. In other words, when using an AIR-EDGE device, make sure that your computers settings allow for connections ONLY to the AIR-EDGE service.

Members may view their connection history via our Account Maintenance (BBB) page. Please check that you are making AIR-EDGE connections. The connection history displayed is updated approximately once an hour.

WILLCOM's charges for their AIR-EDGE service are independent of Asahi Net's charges, so you will need to pay both charges.
