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.

High Capacity Network with Stability and High Speed Data Communication

A pocket WiFi in the SoftBank network provides you high speed and stable data communication with a large capacity. If you need high speed and a large capacity on data communication, this is highly recommended. The prices can be much more reasonable by sharing it with your partner, family, or friends. You will be practically free from any stress on data communication. Only if you use over 100GB in a month, SoftBank limit its speed .

The signal may be weak or out of service in weak signal area (in the car, underground, in the tunnel, narrow rows of buildings, mountain-ringed region, etc) even within the service coverage area.

After not finding any reviews for LightPocket (on any English websites) plus one mention from a 2018 online article, needless to say I was sceptical. Not only did everything go extremely smoothly, the return was a breeze. Delivered to our hotel, English instructions plus return envelope included, charger had an extra USB port, barely any signal loss during our 2 week use, and the Haneda Airport red postbox was near the blue escalators (last pick up 6:25pm). The only thing to flag is your travel group need to be near the router at all times; if you're going to split up, consider SIMs. Was LightPocket's rental worth a go? Absolutely!

We rented this Cloud WiFi unit for 89 days. It was delivered as promised to the Kyoto Central Post Office and was awaiting our arrival. Return was even easier, right in the mailbox outside our AirBnb. It worked seamlessly, except on 3 or 4 occasions the device needed a Power Off / Power On cycle as it would lock up. This was not detrimental to this review. Over 89 days, We deem that to be acceptable. We would definitely return to this company and this product when we return to Japan for our 9th trip in the future.

The router often took a long time to connect and a display would have been a lot easier to see, if the router is on and connected (a PocketWifi version with display wasn't available for us, unfortunately). Nevertheless we always had internet, also in rural areas and the data volume was more than enough for us.

The device arrived on time exactly the way we chose and it is also easy and simple to return it at the airport. The device is convenient to travel and operate, charges relatively quickly and easily lasts 15-18 hours in continuous use. We found one but very important problem with the device: browsing is often very slow.
