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.

Internet worked great

The internet worked great. There were a few times when the signal wasn’t great but most of the time it worked perfectly. I can recommend it to everyone

Best thing ever

The pocket Wi-Fi was awesome. Signal was always good and download speed was great. Battery lasted longer than expected but the spare battery pack was handy to carry around which we also used to charge ours phones.

- Steven Cato    AU

So Handy!

Renting the pocket wifi was probably some of the best money spent! It saved us countless times using google maps to get on trains and find places! Will probably never travel without one again. Thanks so much, the service was great and we never had a problem for the 10 days we had it!

- Claudia Amara    AU

Worked out great

It's a bit of a hassle lugging the stuff around with your phone. But I don't have a phone that has a changeable chip. So this worked out great

Excellent service and great reception

Given the huge amount of options for portable WiFi in Japan I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered the eConnect pocket WiFi. It turns out I had nothing to worry about as the entire process and the service was easy to use and we had excellent WiFi reception.

Picking up the WiFi at the airport was quick and the provided instructions made it easy to get set up. The speed and signal strength of the WiFi was always good, even in subway stations. We used our pocket WiFi in Tokyo, Fukuoka and driving around Kyushu and never found dead spots in reception.

The provided charger and portable battery were very helpful and I was thankful we had the battery when I'd forget to charge the pocket WiFi. Overall, we loved the pocket WiFi and the eConnect service!

Perfect service

I rented the pocket wifi device for 16 days while touring around the Kyoto and Osaka area. The device and wifi service performed flawlessly for the entire time, even when I travelled outside of urban areas and up into the hiking trails around Izumisano. For the whole 16 days, I ended up using about half of the 25Gb allowance, despite using social media and Google Maps continuously throughout the day. One a single charge, the device would stay active for about 8 hours. The logistics of obtaining and returning the device were very simple; you pick it up at the airport post office, they provide a return package, and you then just drop it into a post box at the end of your trip (there's one at the same post office you picked it up from). Highly recommended service!

Good

Very convenient, was sent to hotel and easy to return at the end of rental period. Helped a lot as my phone kept losing connection to my carriers network repeatedly even though I had paid for an expanded plan as a backup. Would rent again

Excellent option!

Super easy to order, great customer service (I accidentally reserved for the wrong dates and had customer service change and adjusted my cost). Very easy to pick it up from the Narita Airport and easy to drop it off. Internet was very fast for 3 devices and worked well in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka and even on the bullet train. Would highly recommend!

Awesome product and service

I got the eConnect pocket WiFi for my month long trip in Japan, and the convenience it provided was just awesome. The download speed and daily data limit was more than enough for my smart phone and netbook. It made traveling around the county so much easier, and I never had to worry about going over my daily data allowance. Extremely happy with the service and product.

An absolute must

With so many choices to stay connected in Japan, choosing econnect pocket wifi was a great decision. With good battery length to last the day i never needed to extra power source provided, and with constant use whilst out sight seeing using Google maps to get around i never feared running out of data.

- Simon Howard    GB

Must have!

Really useful, made us feel comfortable in a country
were we didn’t know the language and the culture. Allowed us to be more spontaneous because we didn’t have to worry about not being able to find our way back and we could look up things around us rather than searching beforehand.

- Corina Benshimol    GB

Simple and effective!

Set up was an easy three steps, the pocket WiFi sat in my purse and provide WiFi for 4 people without issue! At the end of our trip, we dropped it in a post office box using the pre addressed envelope. All in all, It was a great experience!

- Kathleen Hanson    US

Brilliant!

I ordered the wifi box very last minute and arrived on time at my hotel, very efficiant service. Really helped me getting around Japan, without it I would have struggled for sure!

Over the years, it has not disappointed

From Tokyo to Hokkaido and back, the device worked its magic for my family of 6. Even along the Shinkansen route to the north, we had clear Internet reception and the kids were kept busy with their games and videos.

- Darrell Lye    SG

Practical, useful, life saving

Japan is an awesome country full of surprises and things to discover, it can also become a complicated place to navigate without having an internet connection. Having my eConnect with me at all times saved me figure out all my train necessities, lunch ones, or even getting to the right place without having to deal with stuff like paper maps. It's super easy to use, fast, and as long as you have a battery to charge it up you won't have any problems.

- Cesar Palafox    MX

It just works!

We had a fun journey around Japan, including mountainous villages and islands, and wherever there was a phone signal, we had internet. EConnect really made our travel experience low stress.

- Lachlan Milne    AU

Excellent Service Again!

This is my second time using eConnect, having purchased the service almost five years ago on a trip to Tokyo. The service, which was excellent then, worked even more seamlessly this time. Will definitely use again on future trips.

- Jerry Willard    US

Great facility

For travellers coming from UK like myself there is no reciprocal arrangement with Japan's mobile network providers so data is prohibitively expensive. The Pocket WiFi equipment was waiting for me at my hotel, it was easy to use and charge up each day and the service was excellent. Pocket WiFi is an invaluable piece of kit which enabled up to 5 people to access the internet 24/7 and navigate using maps and travel apps. I would use it again providing the cost remains viable.

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.
