Wide Network Covering Japan Nationwide

Cloud SIM technology is a technology which enables to manage multiple SIM cards on a server. Users can use multiple SIM cards on a single Wi-Fi router. With our Wi-Fi using cloud SIM technology, you can switch SIMs on the server, which means that you will have a wide coverage of network from major Japanese telecom companies, allowing you to communicate in a wide range of areas.

Large Volume & High-Speed Communication

As cloud SIM technology manages multiple SIM cards on a server, it is easy to switch SIM cards. If one SIM card reaches the data usage limit and drops the speed, it can be switched to a new SIM card, enabling large volume & high-speed communications. * If you have used a large amount of data in a short period of time, reboot your WIFI device and you will be connected to the optimal SIM card.

What is Cloud SIM Technology?

A cloud SIM holds SIM information from around the world stored on a cloud server, and when needed, the SIM information can be downloaded to a cloud SIM-compatible Wi-Fi device. With conventional SIM cards, each smartphone or tablet contains one type of SIM card. Depending on the information on this SIM, users could make calls, access the internet, and use other services. However, cloud SIM technology stores and operates SIM card information from multiple telecom companies on a cloud server. With this technology, the optimal SIM information for the Cloud Wi-Fi, will be automatically selected depending on the location and environment. The Cloud Wi-Fi we offer, introduced Cloud SIM technology to provide a wide range of high-quality communication using the networks of three of Japan's major telecom companies.

Difference between conventional and Cloud Wi-Fi

Conventional mobile Wi-Fi carries one SIM card in one Wi-Fi router, whereas Cloud Wi-Fi manages multiple SIM cards on a cloud server. It downloads the information of the most suitable SIM card depending on the location to the Cloud Wi-Fi for optimal communication and to provide a stable communication environment.

They didn't have many reviews or SNS information, but for the price, we just went for it. Lightpocket did not disappoint (: amazing option to pick up from a nearby post Office since we arrived to Japan via Hakata Port. Better priced than other travel websites, but I probably also got a Golden week deal. Rented 2 cloud wifis. Only con we had was that they would disconnect when we were in crowded places. ex: underground yakiniku that relies on online ordering, busy crowded tourist traps, but still worked deep underground on the subways so thats great. Would recommend this option to friends and family who plan to go to Japan. Return was easy, just placed back in provided envelope and dropped it in the Postbox before going thru gates at Narita.

The router was very easy to use and performed flawlessly. It was charged over night which was sufficient to last the full day. I visited only major cities so cannot comment on how the coverage would be in the more rural or remote areas of Japan.

What I liked: (1) the device was shipped ahead of time to my hotel (2) the connection speed was fast enough for daily browsing and videos (3) the device was light enough to carry around (4) mobile devices can still connect even if a few meters away from the wifi device (5) easy to return (return kit included, red postbox is available near my hotel and is also near the check-in counters at the airport) What I did not like: (1) a full charge only lasts 5~6 hours of use (2) sometimes the device turns off on its own for no reason (battery still half charged)

The neat little device worked perfectly for us throughout our 2 weeks travelling and gave flexibility for us to connect on either phone or tablet device as required. The ease of having the device delivered to our arrival hotel and the pre-packaging for free and easy postal drop off when complete was seamless, quite simply this enabled us to navigate our way around Japan and worked perfectly 100% recommended.

迅速な対応ありがとうございました!



U.S.A.

This was my first trip to Japan and my friend recommended this product. I was worried that I inputted the hotel information wrong so I put a note saying this was my first time. Upon arriving at the hotel, there was no problems, the front desk handed over the big envelope that had the return envelope, the cable, the charger, and the pocket itself protected by bubble wrap. Each night I would fully charge it and each day, I would bring the cable and a power bank just in case the battery ran out. There was no need, as it lasts all day, although I wasn't really on my phone all day to use the data. On the night we were scheduled to return, the Haneda accident occurred, and I decided to keep the device an extra day. I was able to easily extend my order. All the flights out of Haneda were totally booked or probably canceled, so we needed to stay an extra day. Again, I was able to extend my order an additional day without any problems. Easy to use product, fantastically simple to use website, and a great peace of mind that I did not need to worry about data in a different country. 12/10 would recommend again.
