FASTEST SPEEDS AVAILABLE
DIRECT CONNECTION / NON-MVNO
NO TOPPING OFF (ADDING DATA) NEEDED
LARGEST COVERAGE AREA IN JAPAN
Our 4G service from DoCoMo is a direct connection to the network with
speeds currently as high as 300Mbps.
COVERAGE: NTT DoCoMo provides
coverage in all major cities, rural areas, on bullet trains, and
recently on most subway lines. For coverage area see
CAPS: There are no daily, weekly
or monthly limits (Caps) on the amount of data which may be transferred
using our sim cards or mobile devices.
THROTTLING: Also, we do not throttle (speed
reduction) after a data limit has been reached. Thus, there is no
requirement to add data (Top-off) which may be inconvenient when on the
move in Japan and access to the internet is necessary.
MVNO: Most other
companies use MVNO's (mobile virtual network operators) which are
3rd party networks or sub-carriers which piggyback off the main network.
The speeds provided are determined by the MVNO's backbone and backend
capacity. So it's important to confirm the data speeds and limitations
in advance of choosing your service in Japan. For example, some MVNO's
limit speeds to 75Mbps, the life of the service, the daily and overall
data included with the plan.
