      If you have any comments for service charge, would you describe them concretely?

      The service charge in the Cybermedia Center is decided based on the charge for the consumed electricity required for running large-scale computer systems. However, due to the recent rising of fuel costs, it might be hard to run our large-scale computer systems without raising the service charge. Please check the opinion closest to yours.
      The price increase in the service charge is understandable and acceptable, in the case that the cybermedia center cannot keep running large-scale computer systems due to the rising of fuel fees.I cannot accept the increase of the service charge. By shutting down large-scale systems temporarily or partially, the center should keep the current service charge.Others

      Please tell us about seasonal coefficient of "point" in sured-use.
      If you have any comments, would you describe them concretely?(The detail information about seasonal coefficient is here.)
