Simplicity and Efficiency

Essential Service for travel, especially to Japan. Simplicity for rent, confidence in the delivery, operation accessible and excellent connection.

Excellent choice

I was very impressed by the eConnect pocket wifi. It performed perfectly, giving continuous internet connection throughout my trip. Google Maps have become such an intergral part of the modern travel experience, and so having access at all times is very helpful. The device was delivered to my hotel, on the date requested, and came with a return envelope which the hotel posted. An excellent service.

A connect not E Connect

Econnect pocket WiFi was easy to use, provided 15 days of unlimited WiFi and made my holiday, especially for my 16 year old daughter. It was easy to pick up and drop off to the airport and being connected 24/7 made it very easy to use our devices to navigate on google maps and connect with home and others traveling. Would recommend this service to anyone.

WiFi Boxes for Japan

They were simple and easy to use. The range on there connection was great and we ended up only using half of our data plan for 3 weeks of a trip. Plus, shipping back to them was easy too. English friendly than goodness. Thanks!

A very useful device - good choice

The pocket WiFi performed very well in populated areas as well as on the ski slopes in Hakuba Iwatake. We had several devices connected at times and they all enjoyed good Internet connectivity

Excellent way to stay connected during your trip!

The wifi was very easy to connect and worked reliably (as long as we didn't let the battery run out). Would definitely recommend to give seamless internet connection during an international trip where you don't have cell phone service.

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.
