High Data Limits on a Stable Network with High Speed Access

A pocket WiFi on the SoftBank network provides you high speed, stable, and high data limits. If you need high speed and high data limits, this router is highly recommended. The prices can be much more reasonable by sharing it with your partner, family, or friends. With a data limit of 3GB per day, you will be virtually stress-free from worrying about running out of data. With LightPocket plans, data use is basically unlimited. If heavy data comsumption occurs for several days in a row, SoftBank might limit the speed to maintain network data quality.

Japan's Best Coverage Network Available At A Reasonable Price

2GB in 14 days. This is said to be the most common plan for pocket WiFi routers used by visitors to Japan, or for people staying in Japan for a short stay. Based on that, LightPocket successfully contracted for optimized data capacity at reasonable prices with the major telecommunications companies. The Docomo network is the most stable and has the widest coverage in Japan.

Furthermore, LightPocket offers a small pocket WiFi router with long-lasting battery, and you will be satisfied anywhere you take it. Searching with Google Maps, using social networking services, browsing, watching videos & a little gaming . . . whatever you do, you will be reliably connected to the net with our portable WiFi routers.

Estimates on Data Consumption

About Download Speed Limitation on Pocket WiFi Plans with Docomo

50MB/day: After using your high speed data allowance, you can still use your pocket WiFi at 256kbps.
500MB/day: After using your high speed data allowance, you can still use your pocket WiFi at 256kbps.

The data limitation will be lifted at 0:00 on the following day.

During the rental period, there is no data limitation overall.
But please note that your data speed may also be throttled if you routinely exceed your allotted data for several days in a row, which varies depending on your plan. Even if your service is throttled, you can still connect at 256Kbps, which enables you to use essential apps such as Google Maps. 256kbps is relatively faster than other providers' Docomo plans (128-200kbps).

Even within the service coverage areas, your signal may be weak or out of service in certain areas (in a car, underground, in a tunnel, along or in between narrow rows of buildings, in mountainous areas, etc.)

Everything was perfect. The hotel clerk gave me the package and the connection was easy with the data sticked on the back of the pocket. The return was simple with the prepaid envelope that was in the package. I'll probably use this service again in the future.

This service worked perfectly for me - it was especially helpful to be able to send the package to a post office rather than a hotel address. The device worked well consistently and was invaluable during my trip.

The light pocket WiFi was well worth having on our trip round Japan. There wa much more WiFi available than we expected in hotels and in some towns but a number of times we found ourselves needing information or translation when none was available. For example we were able to book a hotel and car while travelling on a train. Some trains had WiFi but not the Shikansen, surprisingly. Our Japanese grinds also found it useful to hook up to. We would recommend this service which was efficient and good value. Easy to return and we had it delivered to our friend’s house.For us it was better than having a sim as our phones only take one card.
