au new rate plan A big discount on terminals "Two years tied up" is maintained September 12 17:21
Prior to the introduction of new rules for mobile phone charges starting next month, KDDI, which handles au, announced a price plan for next month and beyond. Introduce a system that greatly discounts the terminal price, including contractors of other companies, while maintaining the so-called “two-year tied-up”.
KDDI held a conference on the 12th, and announced a rate plan and a terminal price discount system from the 1st of next month that correspond to new rules such as separation of communication charges and terminal charges.
Of these, for discounts on devices, we will introduce a system that exempts the remaining payments on the condition that purchases of smartphones, etc. in installments of 48 months, trade-in after the 25th month, and replacement with new models.
Contractors other than au can also use it, and the actual purchase price of the terminal is said to be half the maximum, and such discounts follow Softbank.
On the other hand, we will continue to maintain the so-called “two-year binding”, which discounts the communication fee on the condition of a two-year contract, but the penalty for cancellation on the way will be reduced from the current 9500 yen to 1000 yen.
SOFTBANK has decided to abolish “Two Years Binding” over the new rules.
During this month, NTT Docomo is also expected to announce new pricing plans.
