Data Cap

We often get questions about data cap and unlimited data plan availability.
As explained in our blog post, every Pocket WiFi in Japan has a monthly data limit at some point where the internet speed is severely restricted under the Fair Usage Policy.
Even if you found a Pocket WiFi labelled as Unlimited Data, you should not assume that you could use data unlimitedly without any speed restrictions because you cannot.

At eConnect Japan, we set 1GB * rental days for the default data allotment which we guarantee that you can use without any possible speed restrictions.

We believe this data allowance is more than enough for normal travel use but we can add extra GB upon request for those who are in need.

Tips: use hotel wifi or other wifi when you download or upload large files.

Bonus: Order now and get extra 10GB data for free!

What's the speed like?

You might wonder how fast 4G speed would be. Our 4G model is definitely one of the fastest in Japan, the country ranks high in mobile internet speed. We have not heard any complaint about its speed.
So be assured that your internet experience will be comfortable and smooth.

Having said that, it's important to note the figures for both download and upload in the specification above are the theoretical ones at best effort. In the actual use case, the speed will be as not high as those numbers because you are not the only one using the network at any given time. Since the mobile network is shared with many users, the traffic that can go through at a time is limited. Simply put, when more people using more data, the speed will not go that fast.

Best Coverage and Affordability

Anywhere I went there was coverage at acceptable speeds, deep discounts for my 2+ week stay and bonus 1 gb/day was really helpful.

Great item

Fast, plenty of data for our trip (probably too much). It really helped us get around Japan. In hindsight we probably didn't need something this fast or with this high amount of data, but it was good to have, being it was our first trip to Japan.

2018 Japan Trip

Had a wonderful time in Japan. The pocket wifi was very useful plus the extra bonus Data allowance was awesome. :)
Instructions were easy to follow, when we arrived to Japan, the pocket wifi was at the post office ready to be picked up. Returning it was just as easy. Would definitely be recommending your service to my friends and family. I will also be looking forward to using your service again when I return to Japan in the future.

Thank you E-Connect.

Wifi worked great

Pocket wifi was awesome. Unit was dependable and easy to use. Finding the post office and getting our device was fun.

Super easy!

Every step of the process from reserving the pocket wifi device, receiving device at my hotel, using while traveling, and returning was very simple and affordable. Having continual wifi access to use with Google Maps, especially for train information, was essential for us during our time in Tokyo. If you want to stay connected while in Japan, eConnect is a no brainer!

Happy with the service we received

We were very happy with the pocket WiFi that we hired from econnect, there was just one issue when we lost the WiFi service for a few hours (we don't know why), however we were able to go to a Softbank branch and one of the staff kindly helped to resort the service.

Perfect Reception

Easy to collect, Easy to connect, Easy to send back..... perfect reception no matter where we were.

When we ordered we were not able to collect a extra battery due to high demand, however we did not seem to even need it. battery life would last all day from early morning until late at night. Some times 6am to 11pm

wifi everywhere it mattered most, on the street, in the parks, on the bus...helped find my way

we travelled japan on our own for three weeks, and used econnect mobile wifi extensively to get maps and public transit options, making free phone calls for restaurant reservations , etc... i would have given it 5 stars except that the battery did not last that long, needed to remember to turn it off when not using otherwise it would not last the whole day without recherge.

Simple and Easy

Convenient, easy, good value

The pocket Wifi was easy enough to order. The post office at the airport was closed when our flight landed, so we requested the pocket Wifi to be sent to another post office near where we were staying in Tokyo. It was easy to collect and the company send you a message to show the post office staff when you collect the device.

The device didn't come with a battery pack because the company had run out, but we had our own battery pack anyway. On the whole, the device lasted the whole day on a full charge anyway, so we didn't need the battery pack. But it's a shame not to be offered a discount for the fact that the company had run out of battery packs.

The device worked well, picking up Wifi even in the mountains, except for the deepest valleys. We never went over the data limit, even with watching a few short videos on Youtube and downloading images and maps.

It was easy to drop off the device - just put it in the envelope provided and drop it in a post box.

All in all, I recommend this service and the cost seems to be similar to other providers.

Very Easy, No Stress, just pick up and drop off

We were in Japan for 10 days, we had the Wifi dropped at our Hotel near Narita Airport, and dropped it at Narita airport on our return. Didn’t need to go out of our way for any of this transaction. Service was great and would recommend.

Excellent service and quality

I visit Japan about once per year and I always use eConnect Japan for my wifi to go device. Their service is excellent, my device is always waiting for me at my hotel when I check in and returning the device is extremely easy. The device is also reliable and I know that I will have wifi whenever I need it during my travels. I highly recommend eConnect Japan.

FAQ

It is the day we ask you to post the rental items back to us. You can simply drop it in any post box in Japan. We request that you do so by midnight on your return date.

You do not have to worry about how long it will take to get to us as long as you post it in time.

Once your data consumption reaches your total data allotment, it is subject to speed restriction from the network operator.
The network operator does not disclose when (or in what cases) the restriction applies or how slow it will be under the restriction.

Please be assured that the internet connection won't be cut off.

It depends on our data pooling status at the point of your purchase request. It might be possible in most cases but we cannot guarantee.

Please email us atinfo@econnectjapan.comif and when you need additional data.

With the extra portable battery we provide, it normally lasts for a whole day.

However, it really depends on how often and how long you use the device.

It comes with a SIM card inside as a unit. You do not have to buy anything extra.
