Billing and Payment of Charges

Information on the billing schedule for charges, how to confirm usage charges, and how to change your payment method, etc. is provided below.

Billing for Charges

Monthly charges and voice call, communications, and other charges are billed the month following the month of use. The method of providing information to customers for usage charges for mobile phones, etc. every month has been based on the e-billing, and issuance fees will apply if a customer wishes a paper billing statement, etc. to be sent by post.

Points to note regarding billing

  • If charges are exceptionally high compared to your normal usage, we may notify you of this before billing for charges.
