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.

Reviews

eConnect in Japan.

The Pocket WiFi 4G from eConnect performed exactly as advertised. At times we used 4 devices at the same time in various parts of Japan without any problems (even on the trains!). Highly recommended!

Easy and very well functioning Wi-Fi Router

The Econnect router was send to our first hotel in Japan and was there as promised when we arrived. Good instructions to get started and a "return after use envellope" was included in the package. We used the wifi router on our 3 week journey from Osaka to Tokyo and both in towns and driving in more rural areas it was well functioning and kept us all on line (5 persons). I can definately reccomend this service.

Absolutely Necessary in Japan

Having reliable wi-fi in Japan is 100% necessary if you plan on seeing and doing a lot. Getting pocket wi-fi was one of the best decisions I made with regards to this trip. Everything worked great with eConnect - always had Internet access. It also arrived at our hotel on time and was easy to return.

- Neil Granitz    US

Great device; I used a lot less data than I thought I would

I highly recommend this device if you need portable wi-fi, and eConnect offers a competitive rate. I'd also advise that you probably need less data than you think you do. I only used 2GB in two months.

- Tom Weiner    US

Great service and communication

Found this at a great price and speed after I had forgotten to get it earlier before my trip. At one point I had a question and it was promptly answered. Thank you!

All excelent

The Pocket Wifi was already in the hotel when we arrived and use it is extremely easy. I realized the Wifi without any device connected was consuming some Kb every certain time, but it seams is normal. Even that we had enough GB for all the days (we were super conservative at the beginning so we had a lot of GB left at the end..). The device works super well and its super handy that it brings and extra USB battery because its difficult that the battery survives the whole day. We are so happy and was super useful having internet access during our travel to check train schedules, use google maps etc

No problems!

Simple process for ordering, collecting and returning. Worked well in all areas including summit of Mt Fuji! Had to charge overnight everyday to ensure battery life and unit did feel quite warm at times, may have been overheating a bit but didn't seem to impact performance. Cheers!

Very useful to be connected all day

In our group of family members, we had two devices, and made great use of Message and e-mail to keep everyone informed about movements. Allowed us freedom to roam a bit more and co-ordinate meeting up.

Simple, affordable, great WiFi coverage

Loved my e-connect experience. Collected my WiFi from Narita airport T1 post office and it was there waiting for me. I had also been previously emailed about the delivery status of my device so I already knew it was there when I went to collect it. Easy set up, great coverage between Tokyo and Kyoto. Easy return. For return, just slipped the WiFi device and accessories into the prepaid envelope, posted it at the airport. No fuss, no worries. Thanks E-connect. Quite affordable as well compared to other WiFi rental services.

Easy to use and reliable

Device lasts about 10hours except if you’re in an area where 4G is hard to access then it might work overtime and drain battery. We used an additional portable charger to safeguard us on long days. Still, great service and easy to use. I did have a little trouble following the video that shows the pickup point but eventually managed. I think the video could be clearer, maybe using a detailed map instead!

Overall good, could be better

Pick up location at The Narita airport terminal 1 (post office) was so hard to find. It took me a good 20 minuets.
Also experienced intermittent disconnections almost everyday. Sometimes slow speed. Return was easy.

Great experience, would use eConnect again

The rental process was fairly easy. The pocket wifi was waiting for us when we got there. We always had really good reception everywhere we went. Prices and data allocation were very good. What's not to like? Would definitely use eConnect again when we visit Japan, which is almost every year!

- Charles Llige    US

Easy and Simple to Use

Easy and convenient pick up at Narita Airport post office. Everything came into an envelope and was ready to use. We even had a power battery that we used several times during the day to charge our pocket wi-fi (or even our cell phones) on the go. Made our trip very convenient! I would gladly rent again with eConnect!

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.
