Information of major mobile Wi-Fi hotspots (Pocket Wi-Fi routers) in Japan

June, 2016

In the following list, we compared major mobile Wi-Fi hotspots (Pocket Wi-Fi routers) that work in Japan. Japanese mobile Wi-Fi hotspots are using networks of mobile network operators (MNO) like NTT docomo, KDDI au, SoftBank, UQ WiMAX, and Y!mobile (SoftBank). Easygo Japan's mobile Wi-Fi hotspot is on NTT docomo's network.

NTT docomo, KDDI au and SoftBank are called Japan's big three carriers. As UQ WiMAX is a subsidiary of KDDI and Y!mobile is a brand name of SoftBank, the mobile networks in Japan are practically operated by big three carriers. Compared to WiMAX, 3G/4G networks of the big three have better nationwide coverage in Japan. Especially in rural areas, NTT docomo provides the best coverage among other carriers. In exchange for better coverage, WiMAX tends to provide less strict throttling policies.
