The fastest and easiest way to sign-up is to do it on-line: click here.

3. You are prepared for connection.
PPPoE connection software in the Windows XP operating system makes it possible for your computer to connect to NTT's FLET'S services. Do not install the Japanese PPPoE software that you received from NTT, and do not install any other PPPoE software: you do not need other PPPoE software and their presence could cause connection problems.

On the day of NTT opening their service, connect up all equipment provided as instructed by NTT.
