WiFi connection method recommended for foreign travelers.

Last update : September 22, 2013

How to use I recommend

I recommend that you use both NTT East free wifi and wi2.300.



AND


The reason for this is very useful for the number of spots is often wi2 300. However, because of backbone is WiMAX, there is the communication speed becomes slower. Backbone of NTT East free wifi "Hikari-station" is optical fiber, therefore you may be able to communicate very fast.

In Japan, there is a large carrier groups of three. NTT,, KDDI and Softbank Telecom are. I think  that wi2 300 is in KDDI group, established strategy of access points is different from NTT East.

Therefore, because the overlap of the access point is reduced, convenience is sure to be high for the user.

Cost

If you get a Free-WiFi card of NTT East, you can use the Free-WiFi of NTT East in two weeks free.
If you have a credit card, you can use wi2 300 is just $ 380 a month. Initial cost required for initial contract is 0 yen. In addition, termination costs is 0 yen when even termination.

Advice

After you've contract before the trip in advance, you can use the WiFi in Japan from before it can be finished to enter Japan before the setting of the smartphone, to get the free wifi card of NTT East.

Simple contract and the low price WiFi service(wi2 300/over 70000 spots throughout Japan)

Wire and Wireless Wi2 300

Overview


Wi2 300(English page)

This is a WiFi service that I would recommend most. It is not free, but it is very cheap. Monthly 380 yen only. People who have a credit card, anyone can contract. Initial cost required for initial contract is 0 yen. In addition, termination costs is 0 yen when even termination.

I think that it may be the use of contract period only required some people of foreign tourists. 380 yen period you want to stay in Japan is 1 month, it is 760 yen if two months. I think in the WiFi service in Japan, because it is those access points with a large number of, this price is very cheap.

I think because it can be if I subscribe to this service in advance in your home country, by setting the smartphone, people of foreign tourists, and it is very easy from about Japan.

The service area characteristic, railway station, where throughout the city, restaurants, a cafe, etc., you will be able to use anywhere really if urban areas.
