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

Almost ideal

We took LTE Pocket WiFi, and used it in 2 week. There was only one little spot near station Otsuka where it didn`t work. All other parts of Tokyo including metro was covered well and internet there was nice. Even in hotel this pocket wifi was better than local %) The procedure of obtain and return packet with all the stuff was really easy. There were a lot of instructions how to use it. So. 5 stars.

Excellent Product, Super Easy Service

It was so easy to use the pocket wifi through eConnect. I had no trouble retrieving the device from the airport when I arrived in Japan. The device is easy to carry around and carries a charge for the whole day. It was nice to be connected for my entire trip and very easy to return. They really take care of all the details for you. I would highly recommend using eConnect when you're in Japan!

It was great!

It was a great idea to rent this pocket wifi, it worked well during all the trip. The powerbank was sometimes necessary, but it was also provided so there was no problem at all. I can honestly recommend it ! :)

Great service, made everything so easy!

Really great service, I picked the pocket WiFi up from the post office, everything worked perfectly. Posting the device back from the airport is a brilliant idea.

Flawless connection

It worked perfectly. I used it for navigation, and search, sometimes even in the hotel. I was not even close to use all the 21 gigs of limitless data. :)

Reliable connect

Worked every time all the time in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka areas. Even very remote Koyasan. Did not need to use backup battery. Used mainly for email, GPS and Skyping.

Totally awesome option!

I rent Pocket WiFi for 12 days and got 22 GB with unlimited speed. This is much more than if I buy prepaid SIM. One more advantage – I was still available using my phone number, so 2-factor auth and Mastercard's 3DSecure feature were still available. I forgot to disable automatic updates in my OS, so I wasted about 9 GB and needed 2 GB more at the end of rental period, so support team added 2 GB for additional cost very fast just after couple of emails. Great service!

Hokkaido Trip

Customer service excellent when we had to change hotel at the last minute and had delivered to another location. Worked very well. Continuous coverage where ever I went (in trains or countryside). Battery life excellent (about 12 hours). It would be nice to have Pocket WiFi LTE displayed in English; icons helped.

Easy, Great service and Fair Prices too

Great company with clean, easy to understand policies and instructions. Totally 'foreigner' friendly and with reasonable prices for newer device rentals.

Fast speeds, easy to use

Pickup and drop-off at the airport was easy to use. The Pocket wifi had great speeds, and we used it constantly throughout our trip. It usually lasted all day with some extra help from the mobile battery, and then recharging fully overnight. It does get warm after awhile when it's constantly on, though. I would definitely choose this option again, it was very convenient to have our own wifi instead of relying on slow hotel room internet and unreliable vacation rental wifi's.

Just the perfect companion

This small device helped us navigate throughout Japan with ease. We had connection wherever we went and we could even facetime our friends. The setup was easy and the instructions where clear. I will order this again when I come back to Japan for sure!

Easy to use and excellent service

Would highly recommend the pocket wifi through eConnect Japan. We had a strong internet connection everywhere we traveled, and setup of the device was very easy with the instructions provided. The device was waiting for us at our hotel when we arrived, and returning the device at the end of our trip was simple using the provided return mailing envelope.

Amazing Service

Awesome!

I ordered my pocket wifi two days before coming to Japan, but I was still able to pick it up at the post office attached to the airport with ease! Super easy to return it too! The pocket wifi did it’s job! I had it for almost a month and it worked smoothly for the most part. My only complaint is it would lose service while on the subway or in underground places. This is totally understandable, but I kept having to take the pocket wifi out of its pouch and let it find service again. That was sort of annoying, but other than that this thing works great!

Convenient, good price, works perfectly

Easy pickup in airport, easy drop off in any postbox, easy to use (has manual in english). Has extra battery so you don't need to worry that the router can be discharged. Worked perfectly during whole period.

a must for anyone in Japan!

this thing literally made our trip. Whenever we got lost, wanted to look up somewhere to for dinner, or were on a long journey with nothing to do, wi-fi to the rescue. We never had an issue with coverage or data, never ran out of battery despite constant use, and was so easy to use. The collection at our hotel on arrival, and the pre-paid return package for departure made the use of this even better. Would 100% get next time again, and recommend to anyone heading to Japan.

Useful for travel as a couple

Worked really well since we needed days for 2 phones as we were traveling as 2. Only downside was that it lost signal in a mall. Speed was good and battery lasted long!

Amazing!

Everything went so smooth. Easy to receive, easy to return. Connection works great. And data limit was more than enough for the time I used it. Battery is pretty descent, together with extra charge you can be sure it will last a whole day.

Fantastico !!!

Connessione veloce e stabile quasi ovunque. La carica del pocket wi-fi si esauriva a fine pomeriggio e per questo risulta utile il power bank fornito. Per la restituzione abbiamo imbustato il tutto all'aeroporto di Narita e imbucato il plico subito prima dei controlli di sicurezza... molto pratico.

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
