Free yourself from any restraints in Japan with Mobile WiFi router!

Differences from Roaming

Roaming is simple and convenient, although its cost and transmission rates do not match those of WiFi routers.

Roaming is a connection method made using your smart phone.

It is convenient because you do not need to replace your SIM card or carry a WiFi router with you, but it’s very expensive. You must be careful not to connect with the wrong telecommunications carrier or you will be billed with a hefty fee. Also, in many cases, transmission rates in high traffic areas slow down so much that you can’t use the internet at all.
