No Problems at all!!

The unit worked with no problems of speed and connection. I could get about a days worth of use before needing charging (1 user only). Data SIM woukd better if your phone is unlocked.

Great use

Rented the pocket lite version for my backpacking trip. Great connectivity everywhere even in the rural area's. The extra powerpack provided a good backup.
Stable connection even to stream live television from back home. Only disadventage is that the device can get a bit hot after couple hours of use.

Easy to order, find, use & return

So convenient and helpful for getting around. Simple to order online, locating in the airport right after we landed was a breeze, it was easy to use and the mailing return process was hassle-free. For two phones using it constantly for 10 days, we got way more GB than we needed (50) but it was still affordable.

Excellent pocket wifi

Traveled to Japan last week and I was happy to have internet connection almost all the time we were there. My kids were able to do Pokémon go the entire time we were in Japan and they were extremely excited and entertained. We picked up the device at our hotel, next time, I will pick up the device at the airport instead , we were without WiFi from Narita to hotel and that was inconvenient. Overall , we were really happy with the pocket WiFi we rented.

Excellent service and easy to use

Excellent service and easy to use device for traveling in Japan. We picked up the device on our hotel as that was an option. We chose this as we arrived quite late and the post area at the terminal would most likely be closed. The device was at the hotel and ready to use. The battery wasn't long but a charge at night before use was all it needed for top WiFi when traveling around for two weeks. We also handed the device back to the hotel we stayed as in a handy return envelope. The envelope was already marked and post ready so it was just to drop it off and it was returned. Quite handy and really useful for people on the go. Highly recommended! Thank you all for a great and easy service. Very professional.

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!

Pickup is available at airport post offices (in Narita, Haneda, Kansai, Chubu and New Chitose), hotels, guest houses, ryokan, post offices in the city, and residence.

For return, all you have to do is put all items in the prepaid return package we provide and drop it in a post box in Japan on the last day of your rental.

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.

4G & LTE Plan

The total data allowance is 1GB * Rental Days (e.g. 10GB for 10 days rental) which we believe is (more than) enough data volume for normal travel purposes. Note that there is no daily limit so you can use more than 1GB in a day as long as you do not exceed your total data allowance.
Once you reach the total data allotment, it's subject to speed restriction from the network provider. If their system thinks your device is consuming too much data to affect the other users, they might apply speed restriction on your device.

What does 1GB data get you? See our web page.


25GB & 10GB Plan

The total data allowance is 25GB and 10GB respectively for those plans. Same as 4G & LTE plan, it's subject to speed restriction from the network provider once you reach the total data allotment. If their system thinks your device is consuming too much data to affect the other users, they might apply speed restriction on your device.


3G & 300K Plan

They are unlimited with fair usage policy. 

Under the Fair Usage Policy, the network provider shall have the right to reduce and restrict the data access speed (upload and download) for customers who have used an excessive amount of data in a short period of time, which can adversely affect the network quality & deteriorate surfing experience for majority of the users in the shared network.
This policy is applied to ensure customers shall have a fair opportunity to access to and enjoy the local data network.

No, it does not work outside of Japan.

It might work near coastlines but probably not at further from the land.

It is possible to extend it unless we are fully booked.
The extra fee will be calculated based on your original daily rental rate.

Please email us atinfo@econnectjapan.comwith the following information when you need to extend your rental. We ask that you do so as early as possible.

  • Your Oder Number (ECJ-W-XXXX)
  • Number of days you'd like to extend
