Fun Time

Pocket WiFi was excellent. When we arrived at the first hotel it was already there. Worked everywhere we went. Better than many of the hotel WiFi that was available. Only downside was battery lasted 5 hours before we had to recharge and the battery charger didn’t always recharge the Pocket WiFi adequately. Despite all of this I would use Econnect again. Thank you.

This is a brilliant service. WiFi pack was at my hotel when O arrived & it took 30 seconds to set up. It was fast , reliable & small enough to fit in a pocket. Great service, highly recommended.

Extremly usefull. A MUST when traveling in Japan. Good enough internet speed but not great.

Having this service while traveling in Japan it is a MUST. We used it all the time everywhere. It has a 10-20 meter range. The wifi speed is still 2.4Ghz. I would love to have this changed to a steady 5 Ghz wifi network for better speed between device and phone. I found that people using a phone SIM have better internet connection. If you are traveling along a SIM is better but if you are at least 2 people sharing this WIFI device is much better.

Exactly what I needed

I rented out the pocket Wifi because my phone didn't have dual sim and I wanted to keep my original sim card inside. Once I got the package, it came with clear instructions on how to set it up and how to return it which was very helpful. When using it I did not encounter any issues with the 4G connectivity when walking around the various areas in Tokyo. The only downside to the pocket Wifi was that when I left it on for a long period of time inside my backpack, it would tend to heat up quite a bit but other than that I had no problems with it. Even when the battery life of the pocket Wifi was not the best, the fact that it came with a power bank meant there was very little to worry about.

Would definitely use this service again when I come back on holiday to Japan.

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.

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.
