As online communication and web applications becoming integral parts of business conduct, more and more business travelers are getting their own mobile Internet for their trips.

Secures your online presence

One of the biggest threats with free or public WiFi is the ability of hackers to position themselves between you and a connection point. So, instead of connecting directly with the hotspot, you end up sending information to these lurking predators basically giving the hacker the keys to your kingdom, access to every piece of privileged information, business data, and the list goes on.

With a Pocket WiFi, you are connected directly to a cellular network provided by a Telco. It is only accessible with a password and only those within your group are provided with a secure Internet connection.

High-speed Internet connectivity

Frustrations of slow WiFi that often disconnects, restarts, or dies down prematurely can stress out even the best of us.  

At eConnect, we have partnered with SoftBank, one of Japan's biggest communication service network providers. Through their vast and reliable coverage, business travelers are assured of seamless and fast Internet service, probably much faster than local prepaid SIM or roaming services across Japan.

Can connect multiple devices

With strong connectivity power, a Pocket WiFi can connect up to 10 devices within a radius of 30 to 50 feet. Accessible with a password, you can limit the connection only to your tablet, laptop, or additional phones that you utilize to conduct business with executives from other corporations located in other countries.

Large data allowance

The Pocket WiFi is getting more popular among travelers. It's easy to set up, and provides super fast Internet with large data allowance compared to prepaid SIM services. With a large data plan, you can make all the video conferences that you want to anywhere in the world, download large files required for your operation, and even access your office computer remotely to check on a particular document that needs your review.

Furthermore, the large data allowance not only eliminates your need for accessing unsecured WiFi networks, it will also allow using your devices to comfortably create secure “hotspots”, for multiple devices.


Small and light, a Pocket WiFi is designed for use without location constraint, allowing you to access a safe and fast mobile Internet experience. Get hold of any of our Pocket WiFi plans today and experience mobile broadband on the go!
