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 arranged easily. The mobile router was waiting at our hotel on arrival and set up was easy. The Wi-Fi was reliable, even with 4 devices attached to it. Without the router, our time in Japan would have been much more difficult as we used it constantly to check directions and train routes, etc. I would definitely recommend this company and this device.

Using this pocket wifi company was super easy and reliable! We picked up the package containing the pocket wifi from the airport post office right after we landed. The post office was easy to find, pick-up was fast and easy, and setting up the wifi and getting connected to the wifi took seconds. We had no problems with connection or the actual device throughout our 3 weeks in Japan (traveling both in large cities and in small mountain villages). Battery lasted a long time, we made sure to switch it off when we didn't use it and so we only had to charge it every 3-4 days. Dropping off the pocket wifi was super easy too; we just put everything in the pre-paid envelope that came in the package and put it in the mailbox at the same post office in Narita airport. I can recommend this company!

We rented the 500MB WiFi. As far as connectivity and speed it was a great device. The device was mailed to our hotel. We mainly used it to get around using google maps, google translate, email and web searches. We exceeded the data limit two of the days then the speed slowed as expected. The rest of the trip we only turned it on when we were searching for something or lost which happened a lot. At home we rarely exceed 250MB of data so we thought the 500MB plan would be more than enough, but I guess we underestimated the data we would need. Next time we will go with the unlimited plan. Overall a good device at a reasonable price

I used the Pocket WiFi SoftBank Unlimited 15 Days Rental. It was amazing. I had it running pretty much all day and it lasted for the whole time we were out. We would go back to rest in the early evening and charge it back up so it would run all evening. The connection was as amazing. Could stream videos without an issue. Even worked in the subways when at the subway stops to check to make sure we were on the right route. Would definitely use it the next time I am in Japan. The customer service is great also. I wrote the wrong date on a comment and someone from the office emailed me to confirm which date I wanted the pocket wifi. Just drop it off at any mailbox to return it. Easy as can be.

On arrival at Kansai/Osaka we went up one floor to the Post Office and exchanged the email from Light Pocket for this great powerful little device. We switched it on and entered the password and that was it we were connected to the internet. It has a long battery life up to 9hours and definitely saved us tens of Pounds. When leaving it was even simpler we just popped it in the post box in the prepaid envelope. Just brilliant, I recommend you get one without any hesitation. 5Star *

The device worked very well. It always worked when we were on land, the only time we didn't get a signal was when we were on a cruise ship far from shore. Battery life was excellent; the device never ran out of power even when being used most of the day. It was small and convenient, easy to put in our daypack or camera bag or in a pocket if needed. Picking up and returning the device was easy. I would definitely use the LightPocket wifi unit again.

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.
