Highly recommend. Their unlimited WIFI is virtually unlimited as promised. I've used over 1TB without being throttled lol Great prices. Keep them as it is with the special right now. If it was regular price, it would be less attractive to go with Lightpocket.

Due to corona, I liked the price discount. 60 days for approx 12,000 yen. taxed in. Lightpocket's regular pricing is kind of expensive to be honest, if they kept their pricing as the specials now, it would be pretty affordable given the unlimited data cap. I've experienced no data cap essentially, passing 100GB with the occasional network glitch which requires a reboot of the pocket wifi and all is good. Speeds are at best 5MB/s down. I was hoping for more, but that's just a network and device limitation I hope.

Got the pocket wifi unlimited SoftBank for around 30 days, the service worked perfectly without a problem, delivery was really quick, and the support was amazing, I made a pretty big mistake with my order so I contacted the support team and not only they replied within minutes, but also they gave me the best solution possible. Can't recommend LightPocket enough 10/10

Rented the 4G portable wifi. Easy to start and return, no need to travel to shop, can get the machine in the mail. Speed and stability is quite good for 4G as well. Price is fair. Easy to use backend to manage and extend rental. The only complain is the machine can only connect to 7 devices at the same time. Not sure if that's usual for a limitation with these machines. But for usual travel needs I guess 7 is quite enough. I used it at home which were not quite enough but could manage to survive ... sometimes have to switch off some device to allow others. Overall quite good, would choose it again.

SoftBank Pocket WiFi Unlimited 17 Days Rental
Once I had the device in had it was great, but I was flying in to Itami Airport after usual business hours and as such could not pick the device up at the airport. I had to have it shipped to a Post Office near my AirBnB unit the next morning. This made getting from the airport to my AirBnB very difficult, especially after 26 hours of travel and no sleep. Also, I had spoken to a representative to get the shipping address switched from the airport to a Post Office after I became aware of the problem, and received notice that it had been shipped to the airport after all. The representative fixed the problem and had it reshipped as soon as I reached back out, but had I not noticed that email I would've been sunk.

Worked amazingly well everywhere we went, including the mountains of Niseko. LightPocket also left an personally handwritten message with the package upon receipt, which was a really nice touch! Would definitely recommend this service!
SoftBank Pocket WiFi Unlimited 14 Days Rental
The whole process was very easy, from picking the router up at the airport to the day of returning it. THe internet saved me from getting lost a whole lot of times, I'm very happy to have found this service, because back in the day when rentable internet wasn't a thing yet, I was always in trouble setting up meet ups with friends in Japan. It worked always perfectly for me and never ran out of battery too fast, it provided good internet connections at any time it was needed. Can't be more satisfied and it was the second time I used it :)
