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!

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.

Awesome!

This is the first time I rent pocket wifi from eConnect. And I just can say that I'm really happy with the performance! Easy to connect! If one day I return to Japan, I will rent here again. Thank you :)

Good /Fast/ Reliable

i highly recommend using econnect. We rented the Pocket Wifi LTE for our Tokyo vacation.
Wifi was fast and reliable (never lost connection). We were going to go over our data limit but was quickly helped with just an email to econnect customer service. the were able to bump up the limit at the original booking rate. i was able to drop it off in the mail box when we got to Osaka; no problem. High recommended!

Excelent Service

Product met my all expectations. Pocket WiFi was easy to pick up at the airport post office and worked very good throughout our 2 week of stay. Battery last for long time - almost 8-9 hours. Highly recommended for all travelers going to Japan!

A fine Wi-Fi experience

The Wi-Fi unit was delivered well ahead of our arrival. It performed very well during the rental period, and the return procedure was a snap. Recommended.

Share internet in Japan

If you travel with more than 2 people in Japan, the pocket wifi is an interesting solution to connect. Works well and more than 2 people can use the same equipment instead of buying your own sim card

Pocket Wifi

eConnect offers a convenient and efficient way to get a pocket wifi. The wifi device was mailed to our hotel and we got it upon check in when we first arrived. The package includes the wifi, a backup battery, cable, device cases, easy to follow instructions and a very convenient self-addressed envelop to mail back the items back to eConnect at the end of your rental period. The pocket wifi device worked well and provided fast and reliable internet connection on the go. The device does generate quite a bit of heat and I found the device was able to last about 8 hours on a full charge. The back up battery I received only extended the device charge to another 2.5-3 hours for a total of about 11 hours of continuous standby with periodic access to the internet. You may need to conserve battery on days that you are out and about for more than 11 hours. Otherwise, the device served us well and I would definitely recommend and use eConnect again.

Excellent service!

The WiFi came at the post office, it was easy to pick up and came with the charging cable and even a spare battery. When I had lost the WiFi, I let them know I still needed one for the rest of my trip and they sent me one immediately (after I paid for the loss) but I was not charged extra service. Highly recommended!!

Excellent

I used to use data sims every time
I go to Japan but with the pound losing its worth it was getting expensive at 5500 yen for 3.3 gigs.
So looking around I found econnect . It was a bit more expensive but without needing to worry about data usage and three or four devices that needs connected this was the best bang for buck.
With an extra 10gb bonus as we were having it for a month the total available was 50gb.
Going on holiday we didn't need to stream movies but YouTube for research and browsing plus maps nonstop out usage never even reached 20gb.
Econnect done everything they say they would with essay pickup and drop-off
The WiFi unit came with an extra battery but I found the actual unit last about 9 hours so it lasted throughout the day I needed it.
The only discerning thing was it gets pretty hot in usage and when you recharge it using the supplied battery it gets even hotter so I suggest you don't leave it in its cloth pouch.
Overall brilliant service we travelled from Tokyo to aomori at the very top of tohoku and never did it drop out of signal.
It did glitch one time but a quick pull of the battery sorted it.
Will definitely use again next time and thoroughly recommended.

Problem free

For the 14 days I had my mobile wifi, everything went exactly as promised. We had uninterrupted coverage throughout our trip through Japan. It was easy to pick up at Narita Airport and just was as easy to drop off on our last day of usage. It only made me jealous when I go to other countries that I have to do without a pocket wifi as well. Thanks eConnect!

Excellent service

During the whole vacation in Japan from Tokyo to Hiroshima the WiFi box was everywhere and all the time in function. We have used paralelly for four devices, the service had always enough capacity and speed. We could feel us safe, because of we were on line and our friends in Europe were able to follow us any time. Congratulations JAPAN!

Easy rental process

Rented from eConnect after looking at several options online. eConnect had the most informative web pages. My unit was waiting at my hotel in Kyoto when I arrived, and the easy instructions got my wifi started with no problems. The added external charger battery was helpful for several of my long days (day-long train trip to Hiroshima, and a day-long Kyoto tour). Would definitely rent again when I return.

best internet connection in Japan

We ordered just 2 days before arriving in Japan and shipped it to collect at a post office. It was delivered on time and pick-up process was very easy and simple. The network connection was excellent through out Japan and we never had any trouble with it. Very simple to connect and use the pocket wifi. The even gave a portable charger for the pocket wifi. Return process was also very easy, just drop off the packet in the envelope they had sent us. There are post boxes inside the airport and we dropped it off just before going through security check. Best part price was the cheapest we could find among all the pocket wifi in Japan.

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
