Incredibly Useful! Worked exactly as advertised!

This was an incredibly useful device during my recent trip to Japan. I was 100% dependent on Google Maps to find my way around and this enabled me to have connectivity everywhere. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because there was a little confusion in picking it up. I had it delivered to the Navy hotel on base. For some reason it went to a building other than the hotel and for awhile they could not find it. This is probably more of an issue with the hotel and confusing postal service on a military base than anything else. The device itself was perfect!

Great option!

This pocket wifi was everything I needed it to be, it always worked well and was faster than the wifi at most of the places I stayed! The only problem was, the battery does run out quite fast. So be sure to carry the extra battery pack with you (which is provided in the cost). And just so everyone knows (not anything against the company or product, just poor judgement on my part!), 50 GB was way too much for my 2 weeks in Japan. I used around 18GB which even included watching YouTube and Netflix, and video calling people abroad. Just a heads up!

Worth it!

I studied abroad in Japan for a semester and having the pocket wifi was a lifesaver! The battery lasted quite a few hours as long as only one or two devices were connected and much longer if the extra battery pack is fully charged as well. It does take a long time for each to charge so always remember to leave it charging overnight. Also note that it will only work in Japan so if you do a little trip anywhere else you will need a separate plan.

Great internet connection, needs a bit more battery life

Internet connection was great everywhere I went, in and outside Tokyo. When using a lot of internet though, the battery drained quite fast. I would advise taking your own powerbank with you, the one E-connect provided me drained really fast.

Very important travel tool

We were able to travel around Japan with confidence with the Pocket WiFi in out pocket. Pocket WiFi and Google Maps always gets us where we want to be, and we were able to share our experience with friends at home.
We highly recommend this device to anyone planning on doing an independent trip to Japan.

Convenient, functional pocket wifi

I ordered this wifi at the last minute before my trip and it arrived exactly on time. It's easy to carry around and works like a charm for the most part. Return was also super easy since I could just drop it in any mailbox. I would definitely use it again on my next trip.

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!

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
