Overall very good

Overall the pocket wifi worked good. There was only one day somewhere a bit secluded in the mountains that the device could not connect and we had no internet access. The only real remark was about the battery; it did not last the whole day, even with the powerbank. But eventually we adjusted to this and managed to find a way to use it the whole day and charge it in the evening if there were enough power outlets available. Ordering, pick-up and returning were very easy and excellent. Definitely gonna use it again next time when I go to Japan for holiday.

A really useful tool in Japan!

we travelled for hardly a month in Japan and if we haven't had our router wifi it would have been really difficult to manage in the island because, in general, japanese people don't speak english nor Spanish or any other languages.

Pretty Reliable

I consistently had more than 3 bars, but the device would occasionally need to be taken out of sleep mode for it to work. Was somewhat inconvenient, but overall was a pleasant experience for me and my group.

Internet worked well

Internet worked well and even had an issue which was resolved quick by your staff. Just had to follow trouble shooting on your site. Only thing I would consider suggesting it to provide a bit more info about what symbols on the screen are indications of to make a self diagnosis easier. Cheers ryan

Perfect but put a note in case router needs hard reset

As usual the service is perfect withouten Any complaints. But the Explanation on What to do when the router displays “no service” should be included in the envelope, for ease of use. Looking it up on the internet when the router is not functioning is a hassle as you have to hunt for a public WiFi spot in order to go to the internet.

Overall, solid service.

A Definate Recommendation!

This is our 3rd time renting a WiFi router from eConnect for travels to Tokyo and a definate must as we are not fluent in reading or speaking Japanese. Our router was waiting at the hotel upon checking-in and was very easy to setup, use, and return. WiFi speed and connectivity was great but we did notice a few occasions within the confines of the underground train stations where signal was slower....a walk outside solved it. Overall a great experience using eConnect and a must-have on all our trips to Japan. We recommend eConnect to all of our friends planning trips to Japan as well.

Thank you eConnect!!
