KDDI and Okinawa Cellular would like to announce that on March 17, 2014, the number of au Smart Pass members reached 10 million. In the two years since the service began, it has become the country's highest-level paid membership service .
To show our appreciation to our customers, we will start a new campaign from April 2014. Details of the campaign are available on the au Smart Pass service site.
au Smart Pass began on March 1, 2012 with the aim of forging stronger connections between smartphones and real life as stated in the "Smart Relations Concept". For a flat rate of ¥372/month (excluding tax), au smart Pass offers various services such as unlimited downloading of apps and WEB apps, membership benefits through the association of various artists and companies, security measures and data backup, and support services that provide peace of mind like the device repair fee support.
We will continue to expand our service lineup and membership benefits through au Smart Pass so that customers can use their smartphones with more fun, comfort, and peace of mind.
