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.

Second Time, Still Excellent Service

Honestly I love eConnect. I used their wifi unit two years ago when travelling alone and this year with two siblings with me. Wifi was consistent and easy to use! Easy to pick up, super easy to drop off, overall 10/10 service. If you're going to Japan, this makes travel a million times easier! Order early too! ;)

Convenient and easy to use service

I have now used econnect three times and have not had any major problems. When I did have an unexpected and unexplainable service interruption their customer service was great and they quickly refunded me for the unused portion.

Pocket Wifi Rental in Japan

I was very nervous about purchasing a wifi device over the internet. My first idea was to use my phone carrier, but that failed after they told me my family plan was ineligible for the international wifi plan. Upset, but determined to get wifi while on my trip, I came across eConnect. Very reasonable, easy to follow instructions and they had good reviews. The wifi devices were waiting for us at our hotel in Japan. Everthing went well and we returned it in the envelope provided. Mahalo for making our trip to Japan a success!

Awesome

Overall we think the collection is fast, easy and smooth. Easy to purchase, use and value for money. Good option. Surely will consider to use it again in future.
However, one of the powerbank has slight deficiency and overheated very fast compared to the other one.

Great

Did exactly what I needed. Had a couple connectivity issues and if the battery life could be a bit longer naturally would be perfect (because it's hard to find so many outlets when you need to charge your phones as well) but very happy with the product.

Great product and great service!

I was a bit worried about having to rely on a pocket wifi for the 7 days in Japan, but i had nothing to worry about because my wife and i were able to use easily and worry free the entire trip! The one thing I would recommend is to have and use a external power bank to extend the life, especially if you are out all day and all night.

Pocket WiFi 4G

Invaluable thing to have on the trip abroad, in particular where the surf is expensive. 20GB to spend in 10 Days was mora than enough. Inexpensive, stable, reliable and fast.

Perfect Tool/Accessory for a Visit to Tokyo

The pocket WiFi worked almost perfectly...had to reset it a couple of mornings to get my phone to connect. The was plenty of bandwidth for five of us to connect and browse. It was an essential tool for navigating Tokyo and the rail system. The unit was sent ahead of time and was in a great location upon arrival (I used a neighborhood post office as Saturday delivery to Haneda was not an option). Leaving it on all day, it was important to have the portable charger which accompanied the unit. The prepaid postage and envelope made return very easy--used a post box pre-security at Haneda airport.

Great service!!!

I was in Japan for a week and I found pocket wifi 4G is the best option for me. I relied heavily on this pocket wifi during my time here in Japan and I used googlemap the most. I also used this when I stayed at airbnb as I didn't bother to ask for instructions to log into wifi haha I picked up my pocket wifi at Narita airport, the post office was easy to find. The instruction was clear and it was very easy to use. I will rent this pocket wifi again when I visit Japan in the future ^^

Excellent Experience

We visited Japan for 3 weeks. The WiFi modem was at the hotel upon our arrival, as promised. Connection to the internet was simple and reliable. The equipment was returned at the end of our trip in the pre-addressed envelope provided. eConnect's service is excellent and highly recommended.

Convenient and easy to use

So glad we decided to get this pocket WiFi for our trip. It saved us many times with directions and translations in Japan, and was easy to connect and convenient to drop off, price was fair and well worth the cost. The post office was a little rough to find for the initial pick up, wish there was a closer location to airline arrivals. Thank you!

Seamless process.

Easy to book via website and to collect from airport. Envelope provided to return, so this part was easy too! Only slight downside I found was that the pocket WiFi only lasts about 10 hours? Being a tourist in Japan we were out longer than this. They do provide a portable charger, but this just adds another thing to carry around and something else to send back. If you are mindful of this then this product is highly recommended!

Excellent service

Ordered the package in advance and picked it up from KIX airport. After one minute from turning it on, all our 5 smartphones were connected to internet. 20MB/s download / upload speeds sufficed our needs. Good coverage around Osaka / Kioto area.

Highly recommend!!

This pocket wifi were one of our holy grails when we travelled to Japan. We picked it up from the airport post office with no issues. There were helpful instructions on how to use it and how to return it.
The battery lasted us all day - two mobile phones connected and the wifi was switched on all day. The wifi speed was outstanding! Whether you’re at the countryside, on the shinkansen, shopping malls it worked fantastic. I believe the price is very reasonable too. We got 20gb for 10 days of use and we only managed to use up 11gb. I got reminder emails about picking it up at the start of our trip and returning it back before the end of our trip. Returning it was very easy and handy. Overall, I had a very pleasant experience with econnectjapan. Highly recommend!

Fantastic!

4G pocket WIFI worked great, never lost WiFi connection in Osaka, Kyoto, Nara or Hiroshima. Definitely will get again! Was at the hotel when we checked in and just gave the envelope for the hotel to mail when we checked out.

worked as advertised

a good solution when traveling outside major cities. or even in those cities, especially for longer trips when Verizon's $10/day International plan adds up quickly. Only lack is phone service; if one needs to reach those without internet access (there are a few left) one either has to use US carrier or plan to stay in a hotel with the "Handy" phone service.

Great coverage, great speed

I used the 4G Mobile WiFi to connect 3 devices on a 15 day trip of Japan. It worked great. Fit easily into the pocket too. It does come with a backup battery which I used probably half the days on the trip. Something else to carry unfortunately but necessary. Sometimes I wouldn’t be connected and I would have to tap the device to get it to enable its radio.

Device worked perfectly over the 2 week period, had fantastic reception and was easy to bring everywhere we went. Would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone travelling around 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.
