New Freedom―Making Individual Lifestyles Even More Exciting
"au" helps customers select the devices that best meet their needs, and we help them enjoy a host of content over optimized networks. And the services KDDI provides go beyond mere communications services and provide a variety of other services that enrich customers' daily living, including payments, shopping, electric utilities and finance.
For customers using au smartphones and au mobile phones, we have repared the "au Pitatto Plan," where data fees automatically change according to the volume of data used, and the "au Flat Plan," where discounts are offered even for high-volume data communications. Furthermore, from the summer of 2018, we will begin offering Netflix users the new dedicated payment plan "au Flat Plan 25 Netflix Pack," which is a package of content services and smartphone communications services offering discounts for watching Netflix's video content on au smartphones. The "au Smart Value" package offers discount rates on smartphone or au mobile phone service to subscribers who use KDDI's fixed-line service or "au Smart Port"  as a set. The fixed-line service includes the world's fastest "au HIKARI Home 10 Giga" phone package, as well as affiliated fiber-optic Internet service and cable TV service with 252 channels , from one of our 152 affiliated CATV companies in the user's local area.
"au Smart Pass Premium" Makes Services More Affordable and Enjoyable
"au Smart Pass Premium" has enjoyed positive reception from many customers as the premium service within "au Smart Pass." The service offers exclusive member benefits with "au Everyday" and "Santaro Day," with daily discounts on movies and karaoke and free gifts such as French fries. Together with initiatives to improve customer experience value such as "Data Recovery Support" when devices become damaged and "Wi-Fi Security" to protect communications when connected to Wi-Fi, we aim to enhance safe and secure services. Various other services include "Video Pass," offering unlimited viewing of movies and anime; "Uta Pass," which offers unlimited listening to hits from the past through to the latest songs; "Book Pass," to enjoy unlimited viewing of e-books; and "Disney Pass," providing unlimited use of Disney-related content. And with "News Pass," customers can easily read news that interests them.
To express its appreciation for loyal subscribers, KDDI provides a membership program called "au STAR." This program is available free to any au subscriber. Members receive an "au STAR Passport," which allows the member to make priority reservations at an "au shop." The "au STAR Royal" plan rewards its longtime customers by providing "WALLET points," based on the number of years they have subscribed to au services and past data volume charges. Throughout the year, special "au STAR Gift" items will be available to members only. These three services are only available to au STAR members. KDDI hopes that this will make customers satisfied to have chosen au services.

We also offer customers the even more beneficial and convenient "au WALLET Credit Card," which allows customers to accumulate more points by setting it as the payment method for monthly au phone and communications charges.
