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!

Straightforward & Highly Recommended!

The entire process and product were exactly as described. The package was at my hostel on my arrival, the instructions were crystal clear and well written, and the wifi worked as best as it could on LTE the whole time (depending of course on the signal strength of my location - I never dipped below 4G even out in the country mountains, though!). Return was as simple as it's always been with eConnect - pack back up in provided return envelope and slip into a postbox. Highly recommended service!

Convenient and reliable

eConnect wifi device and service we used for our 10 day trip in Japan was perfect. From ordering online, to picking up the device at our hotel, to getting it up and running easily and having wifi all over Japan (we travelled to Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima), and then popping it in a mailbox at the airport - everything worked perfectly and smoothly. Great service and great device. Having internet in Japan is essential - really made navigating the streets and subways much much much easier. Thank you for providing a great service to travellers.

Definite Recommendation

This past month, my significant other and I took a three week trip to Japan. We had about 31GB available for the entire trip and we didn't even use half by the end. The WiFi was fast and reliable when using the internet to navigate through the city using Google maps or browse the internet while on long train trips.
I purchased the Pocket WiFi the night before leaving to Japan. Since my order was last minute, I sent it to the hotel I was staying at. The tracking information definitely kept my mind at peace and I was delighted to have the device easily retrievable. At the end of the the trip, it was very easy to sent it off in a post box at the airport. Overall, my experience with EConnect Japan was fabulous.
Definitely recommend to others who are looking to purchase a Pocket WiFi. When I return to Japan, I will definitely be using EConnect's services.

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
