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!

Reviews

100% Happy

This is now the fifth time I have rented a pocket wi-Fi from you and I was 100% happy with the easy process to order and return the device and with the reliability of the service. I have recommended you to a number of people who have all also been happy with the process and service.

Great service and value

This is the second time I've used eConnect in Japan, and it was just as good as the last time. I never had any issues with signal loss or bandwidth. It was always there when I needed it with a very good battery life and easy to pocket size.

Worked Great on My Trip

This is the 3rd time renting from E-Connect. The pocket WIFI I rented has been upgraded to a better unit. It worked great all during my trip. It was a good deal with the early reservation discount. Thanks a lot.

Easy to use and worked well.

The eConnect WiFi was very handy to have and very easy to use. We had four devices operating off the one pocket WiFi and it worked very well. Pick-up was easy from the Post Office in Terminal 1 at Narita Airport and drop off was just as easy. My only negative comment is that the back-up battery is small and so re-charging mid-day is necessary at times.

- John Louis Gravel    CA

Always Awesome.

We have always relied on eConnect to take us around Japan, and it has never let us down. Keep up the good work!

So Convenient!

My son lives in Japan so he was actually the one to order the mobile wifi for our trip to Japan from Hawaii. This way we could still use our own phones to send and receive emails even when we are not in our hotels. Easy instructions to follow, small enough to slip into my purse, and when our trip was over, all the instructions and return envelope were provided. Just plopped it into a mailbox. Really appreciated the reminder I got the day before I left that it was almost time to return it, then was also nice to receive an email telling me that they could already track it in the mail. Didn't have to worry about it.

Great ease of use, but some connection inconsistencies

Pick up was easy, and the instructions were great. It was very easy to turn on and use, but I didfind that the actual device sometimes would disconnect throughout the day for no real reason (I hadn't turned off my phone or the wi-fi and the battery wasn't almost dead).

Fast and reliable

Fast: While in Tokyo, I relied heavily on Hyperdia to get from one location to the next. It was important to get search results fast so that I can hop on the earliest train possible and save on time. I never encountered a slow down with this.

Reliable: No weak spots. Tokyo has a lot of underground structures, from walk ways to subways to shopping malls. I always had a connection anywhere I went.

perfect to stay connected wherever you are and whenever you need it

The pocket WIFI was perfect to stay connected where ever I was and to make phone calls.
It is super easy to use and very practical. It's the third time that i am using that system. I feel releived to know that I can count on the pocket WIFI for internet research for shop and restaurant location, visits that i can do or train timetable.
Thank you

Excellent Coverage

We had a great experience. Last we visited Japan, we also rented a Pocket WiFi with eConnect. This time, we got a newer device, however its battery life resulted shorter. The included portable battery charger is really useful and neccesary. We visited Kyoto, Nara, Yoshino, Himeji, Hiroshima, Mijayima, Tokyo and Hitachi and never had problems of data coverage, great service!

Hassle-free way to stay connected

I rented the the Pocket Wifi LTE while travelling in Japan with friends and I'm glad I rented my own unit. While this comes out just a bit pricier than other wifi rentals(especially for the very budget conscious) it more than makes up for it with their reliable performance, an included powerbank(a lifesaver considering my own powerbank is reserved for my phone) and a cute small pouch to keep both pocket wifi and powerbank for when you're on the go.

I'm super glad I rented my pocket wifi from econnect because it was such a seamless transaction and their option to deliver your unit not only to a hotel but even an Airbnb address is such a great idea!

They do have a data cap on even their LTE units so do check out how much you'll have before you decide on which plan to get. I got a 19GB cap on mine (managed to get a 10GB bonus) and wasn't able to use all of it without having any restrictions on my use.

Pocket Wifi LTE: 4-1-18

Each time we visit Japan, I always make sure to rent from eConnect a pocket Wifi. Affordable and dependable as always. Unit works just fine for my purposes like GPS navigation, sending messages/pictures via viber,etc. Until our next visit again to Japan, Thank you for the wonderful service provided.

Amazing service

Fast data speeds, perfect coverage(even on the shinkansen in more rural areas), and picking up and returning to the post office was a super simple process. Going to use this again for sure.

Love this~

Easy pickup. Easy to use. Easy to send back. Lasted from around 12pm to maybe close to midnight on normal charge and then had to break out the portable for a midnight snack run (had 2 devices on wifi). This was fantastic to have for a short weekend trip and I'll definitely use again the next time I drop by!

Easy to pick-up, and great to use

I picked this up upon arriving at Narita Airport, and the LTE option was perfect for me. Fast speeds, decent battery life. I'd have to charge it at least once a day usually but I was using it pretty much constantly. Easy drop off too. Would highly recommend this if you're out messaging, using Google Maps, uploading to Instagram, etc.

perfect

The package was waiting at our hotel, easy to set up, used for 2 tablets, 1 phone and one iPod, very useful for maps, checking train times, looking for restaurants. Third time using eConnect, will continue to use on future trips.

Он нас спас!

Отличный сервис. Просто коробочка, к которой подключаются около 5 предметов. Мы были всегда на связи. Иногда приходилось его перезагружать, когда один из телефонов терял сеть, но это нормально для любого современного устройства.

Excellent Service in Japan

My fiancee and I visited Japan for 17 days. We traveled to Osaka, Hiroshima, Mt Koya, Kyoto, Hakone, and Tokyo and had no issues whatsoever. We will be renting again from eConnect on our next trip to Japan!

Fantastic Value for the Ultimate Insurance for your Travels

We are Australian, so our terrible internet at home made the so called 'lack of WiFi' in Japan seem rather untrue, however, this little pocket WiFi was the ultimate peace of mind. Thanks to it we made sure we were lost by more than a single missed block or wrong turn. For the price, the connection speed, and the generous amount of data granted, I highly advise it to anyone travelling in Japan, whether alone or in a group.

Always connected. Most convenient way to travel.

Pocket wifi made my travel day to day easier than anything else. I got never lost, It was easy to change day plans since you can make search anytime. I always stayed in touch with friends and family.
Device battery + power bank allow you to be connected all day long.

Good service

The service is very convenient to pick up and return, it worked well during the time I stayed in Japan but the extended battery was quite poor so it could not help the device working in one day. Please check the battery quality before shipping

Thank you

To Pham Minh Thien

We apologize that the battery lasted shorter than you expected. Batteries are expendables so it cannot be helped but please feel free to ask us for a replacement battery anytime if the battery lasts too short!

Good and reliable Service

I ordered the LTE pocket Wifi for 4 days. It has arrived perfectly on time at the post office in NRT as promised. It was very easy to use. Also for the return, everything was perfectly described, so I had to only drop the prepared enveloppe to the next red post box. The pocket wifi battery lasted only one day and then had to be charged again. But since also a spare battery and all cables were included it wasn't an issue at all. All in all a smooth experience. Will order it for my next trip again. Thanks

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
