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.)

Got it on time and easy return. Good battery capacity. Generally worked well, except sometimes in Tokyo when it was very slow late in the day . I do not know if this was due to the fact I exceeded 350 Mb (which is very unlikely as I used it only for google map and some internet browsing) or whether due to coverage problem in Tokyo.

Using Light Pocket was for me the easiest, simplest uncomplicated way of going online in Japan. You can't always rely on local wifi ....it often involves tedious registration procedures - exactly what you don't want when you are standing on Shinbuya Station with trains arriving every few minutes with obscure destinations....!

We ordered our pocket wifi 2 days before arriving in Tokyo and it was delivered to our hotel the next day. The device worked flawlessly and the battery lasted all day (9AM-11PM). It worked during subway rides as well. The total cost was $47.33 for 7 days of unlimited fast internet. Other rental places charge you more and have a cap on how much data you can use daily. This one is unlimited so it's great if you're looking to share with a group.
