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

Fuss free

I've been renting from econnect each time I return to Japan and I'm happy to use their service each time. Connection is excellent, even when I'm out of the city. Customer service has been prompt and polite while the method of collection and returning is fuss free.

My experience

It was just amazing the discount I was given for the period of time that I rented the Pocket Wi-Fi. Before I knew about your company, I've rented from other one, but it was much too expensive and it didn´t have an external battery, that has to be rented also.
Thank you for your rapidness delivering the wifi. Everything was perfect.

Fast, reliable internet - super useful

Had this thing in my backpack, constantly on and using Google maps to find directions, check wiki, etc. Sure Japan (and tokyo) has plenty of free wifi, but i found the convenience of this well worth it.

Seamless and Easy

Expensive but cheaper than multiple Sims. Reduced battery drain on all devices as on WiFi all the time rather than the data network directly.

Worked everywhere we went at hyper fast speeds from a tiny pocketable box.

Would definitely use again. Arrives by post a few days early. Return is hyper simple and convient. Can't recommend enough.

Awesome service!

Easy pickup, setup, competitive price (did a lot of research and eConnect was the cheapest), and always had wifi wherever I went. They also included a portable battery just in case the wfi died. Also had more than enough data for 11 days - definitely recommend!

Having a pocket WiFi in Japan makes life much easier

From setup to finish the whole process of getting the WiFi was easy.

Order online
Select pick up location
Pick-up upon arrival in Japan
Connect all your devices
Explore the city while constantly connected to your navigation, social media, translations and WiFi phone calls.

When exploring Japan this is a must. It made our trip so easy as we would pull up directions all the time. Now we were able to go from A to B and we knew exactly what train to get at what time.

WiFi was very fast (I choice the LTE package).

Battery on WiFi later the whole day.

Thank you!

Perfect and with excellent signal

I used the device for 8 days, taking advantage of a promotion with 18 Giga, instead of 8 as per contract. I used it in Tokyo, everywhere, even the Subway or on the Sky Tree the signal was always perfect. The battery lasted for more 10 hours (but in bundle there was another external battery), as the device only uses energy only when ii sends or receives data, and while you are taking pictures or you're not using the navigator it consumes very little energy. After 7 days of strong use the data consumption was less then 4 giga....and using Maps, Face, Wapps video calls... everything, with two cells linked to it. Perfect!

Very handy for using maps, etc.

We had the chaper and a bit slower option, but it still worked great for us.

Lifesaver in Japan

Fantastic value! My gf and I travelled to Japan all the way from Mexico. Since we don't speak Japanese, having an internet connection anywhere really helped us find our way around. LTE was even reliable enough for some light video calls back home.

Pocket Wifi was waiting for us at our hotel, and the return is very easy as you only have to put everything into the provided return envelope, and you can drop it off at any postbox (there is one at the check-in counters in Narita airport).

Will definitely use econnect Japan if I ever visit again!

Reliable and Essential!

Had a solid battery that lasted most of the day - we just used the free battery pack to top it up if it was a long day.

Connection was strong and fast!

Great way to stay connected

The portable WIFI was great! Kept me and my friend connected while we were in Japan and didn't mess up iMessages when you use a data sim. Had a generous amount of data for the 10 days we had it.

It was convenient and fast

It was convenient, the pocket wifi usually lasts until around 4-5 pm assuming that you start using it at around 8.00 am. After that you need to start charging with the extra battery provided. The extra battery was super crucial or else the pocket wifi would have died out of battery in the evening. The only minor negative is that after long periods of usage of the pocket wifi say 4-5 hours, I find that I have to restart the pocket wifi because it suddenly wasn't receiving signal, once restarted everything became normal again. The restart I felt I had to do several times a day if I started my sightseeing in the morning and ended it at night. Other than that, the connection was good, even a top of a mountain (Mt. Shosha). Fast and reliable. Highly recommended! I'm also a returning customer, I've used econnect in 2014 before, I felt the device I used in 2014 had better battery life and I didn't have to deal with the start and restart thing. It could just be the device I received. Other than that. It was a really good service, fast and reliable. Collecting at Kansai Post Office was a breeze, returning was also a breeze. Will definitely get this service when I return next time.

Excellent connection wherever!

This is my second time renting econnect pocket wifi. I went to less touristy places this time in Matsue, Okayama, Saga, Kokura but I have excellect connection whether in a bus, train or shinkansen. The pocket wifi was delivered to my hotel and ready for pickup at check-in. Returing the product is super simple as well. Econnect is definitely my go to pocket wifi service for my Japan trips!

Satisfied

I'm very happy about the performance of this pocket wifi, and I have recommended to many people to use eConnect. The only minor annoyance I had was that it would disconnect sometimes, and it would take longer than necessary to connect after turning it on (because the 3G icon disappeared). However, once connected, it fully functional. Overall, will definitely use it again.

Easy to use, fast, reliable

Thanks to the wifi pocket which helped a lot in my Japanese journey.
I rent the wifi for 20 days and 20gb plan and it was enough. The battery last all the day but for any extrause you have an additional battery. I picked up the wifi pocket at kansai airport post office and returned back in the red post box of the same office in the day of my departure. Convenient, extrasimple to use. Everything just smooth.

Excellent service

Hired for a 16 day Japan trip. Package was waiting for us at our first hotel and all the supplied return post materials were included. Easy to use and set up. Kept us sane in the long ques at Fuji Q and Universal Studios as well on the long day trips away from the hotel. Around 14hr battery life without needing the extra battery pack.

Highly recommended for anyone traveling and not wanting to blow your data limit on your mobile. Will be using these guys again on our next trip.

Would highly

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
