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!

It was amazing

Pocket WiFi LTE

Excellent connection. But the battery doesn’t last. But overall satisfied.

Exactly what I needed

I rented the LTE pocket wifi and it was awesome! I never had a problem with connection anywhere I went and the battery lasted pretty much all day. Plus it came with a portable charger. When I opened the case everything was already fully charged and came with instructions! It was exactly what I needed for using my phone's GPS. I saved a lot of money using the pocket wifi rather than paying per megabyte with my phone company! If I ever go back I will definitely use this product again!

Japan family trip

The econnect pocket wifi service was awesome. It keep us connect with friend and family and was really help to get the online maps going. It was very easy to use. I highly recommend.

Fast arrival, LTE a bit slow though

Bought this for an emergency as I’ve used all my mobile bandwidth and I needed to get some work done in Japan. Arrived very fast, and it had a generous amount of data included. The LTE service was slower than i expected though. Nonetheless it helped me finish the work I needed to do.

Extremely Useful, Easy-to-Use

I hesitated over getting a pocket wifi for my trip to Tokyo but it made my trip so much more convenient! It was extremely easy to set-up, use, and return - the device is simple, the instructions are clear, and I had no issues with anything during the week I rented it. Even though there are free wifi spots around the city, having the pocket wifi for the stretches in between, or when I needed the internet at a moment's notice, was invaluable. I highly recommend this product/service!

I had no issue at all!

The pocket WiFi worked well for the entire time I was using it. Coverage was strong even inside the subway train. Value for money indeed.

Will use again

The entire process, from ordering on the website, to picking-up at the airport, duration of use, and return, was seamless and taken care of. The peace of mind knowing that I didn't have to think about data I was using to navigate the city or where to find available WiFi proved essential as a visitor. For music streaming, Google Maps use, social media, I found my data type/selection more than adequate. Further, I used this device in out-of-city areas including Nikko, Okutama, and Kamakura with no issue or reduction in speed. The only caveat I found using the pocket WiFi was that I would have liked the battery to have lasted longer as I would need to give it a juice boost by late afternoon (after heavy use during a busy day-period). That said, a portable power bank fixes this issue. Will use again next time I'm in Japan.

A very necessary item for the trip

This was the first time I had the opportunity to use this Pocket Wifi device. Let me tell you, it was a "must" device for our trip. This LTE unit performed very well everywhere we went (including the mountains). Didn't experience any issues with it. Battery life was pretty good. We would get about 8-10hrs per day and then we will recharge at night. Pick up & return process was also very easy and straight forward. I highly recommend this for everyone visiting Japan and will definitely use it again when in Japan.

Everything you could ask for

No complaints whatsoever. Picked it up at the post office the day after I landed in Osaka. Spent 7 days exploring Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo and was connected the whole time. Battery lasts a solid 8 hours and the portable charger will add at least 3 more hours. Booked the LTE option and had no issues with the speed of the internet. Worked in all spots, no issues with spotty coverage. Would book again.

Best way to stay connected

Great value and coverage

Used this plan in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka over a 2 week period. My data was in constant use for social media but I only used about half of what was made available to me. No issues with coverage or connection and pickup/dropoff was a breeze. Can recommend to Japan travellers.

- Lauren Furner    AU

easy to use

great service all around. a little iffy when underground at times, but perfect between Kyoto and Tokyo otherwise.

Convenient Option

Found the order and delivery process to be extremely convenient. Shipped to my hotel and it was there upon my arrival. Everything had a nice little carrying case to keep in my travel bag. Device worked well overall. No major hiccups with service. The device itself had to be rebooted several times. That's the only reason I left four instead of five stars. It would just inexplicably disconnect itself. Battery life was fair. I was happy they provided the complimentary backup. I do wish there was a language option on the device but I will still order from this Company again on future trips. I recommend you do too.

Useful

It was really useful and convenient to use, so the next time I'm in Japan, I would order it again.

Great product and service

I used the pocket wifi for 10 days in July. It was so much easier and better value than getting a sim card in Japan (which my aunty had to do, she got 1GB for $25). It was delivered to the hotel and given to me upon my arrival. There is a backup power bank included too. I had no problems with the product or service. I returned everything at the airport (Narita Terminal 2). I got the 25 GB option which meant that I could also use it at the hotel when their wifi was slow.

Amazing!

I rented pocket wifi for the first time when in Japan, last time I purchased an econnect simcard. They even sent it on the day of purchase to the hotel that I'm staying.
I think wifi pocket is more affordable than the simcard, the only down side is the battery and the wifi pocket heat up quite a lot, I was a bit worried that it might start fire (I visited Japan during summer). The speed is faster than I expected and the connection range is very wide.

Overall, it is a very convenient way to stay connect with family and friends. I would definitely rent this pocket wifi again in the future. Thank you for making my trip enjoyable!

Great connection, value for money, and service!

This is the best pocket wifi rental service I've used. Pick up is very convenient since they can deliver it to your hotel. Similarly, drop off is through any post box in town. They even provide the package to mail it in. Connection was really good. Customer service was amazing too! They were very responsive and helpful every time I contacted them. Definitely using eConnect's services again.

just as promised!

e-connect delivered a faultless service. Having their pocket wi-fi with me - providing continuous internet access to my cell phone - was invaluable!

Good Wifi

The wifi speeds were pretty good and reliable. The only thing that could have made this better is if it lasted more than 8 hours. If you're out long, you'll have to charge it before the end of the day.

- Michael Jiang    US

Simple &efficient

We ordered the pocket WiFi a day and a half score our arrival to japan. Since we were arriving late at night, we had it delivered to the hotel. Worked as promised, was fast and reliable. Returning it at the airport was as easy as getting it: the delivery box contained a return envelope and instructions—and the lost boxes are pretty much everywhere.

The most important assistant of our trip

As the title says, without Internet it would be difficult to find what to do, where to go, translate your language to japanese etc. And Pocket WiFi did deliver on this aspect. We had Internet even between subway srations! The 21GB offered were more than enough for the days we spent there and the LTE we chose was perfect even for lite streaming
Highly recommended then!

Helped make my Japan trip so much more fun and easier as i never had to worry about getting lost and having no access to googlemaps. 10/10 would do again

MVP Of My Vacation

I would not have been able to navigate Japan during my two week vacation without my pocket wifi from eConnect. I ordered it from home in the USA two days before I was set to travel and thankfully it was waiting for me at the front desk of my first hotel. Within a few minutes I was set up and ready to explore Tokyo using GPS on my iPhone. The instructions to connect were very simple and I had no issues through my 10 day trip. It was wonderful being able to easily communicate with family and friends back home quickly and conveniently without hunting for available wifi. Returning it by post was simple too. Thank you for the amazing service, eConnect!

Easy pick up and return, some loss of connections

As others said the service is perfect. The extra powerbank comes in handy for emergencies. In busy places (restaurants) I sometimes experienced a connection loss and was unable to reconnect my ipad. The moment I left there it was reconnected again.

Reliable pocket WiFi LTE at a very reasonable rental fee.

Very reliable LTE pocket WiFi even in mountainous area like Mt Fuji. The 10GB promotional offer is a big plus. Highly recommended this service for reliability and ease of pickup and return of rental pocket WiFi and accessories.

Great Coverage

We ordered econnect lite at almost the last minute. The portable modem arrived at the hotel shortly after we did and worked consistently throughout the trip. Great coverage and loading speed.

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
