TOKYO - On September 13, 2017, Telecom Square, Inc. started offering WiFi router rental service, "Wi-Ho!," to travelers visiting Japan from Australia and Canada.
With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics approaching, the number of visitors to Japan is expected to rise. However, there are not many free WiFi spots in Japan, making it inconvenient for foreign travelers to connect to the Internet. Therefore, Telecom Square would like to solve this problem by providing WiFi router rental service ensuring reliable Internet connection for those who need Internet access during their trips in Japan.
A WiFi router is a mobile device that enables smartphones and computers to connect to the Internet anywhere. Users are able to connect to the Internet at popular destinations, such as Hokkaido and Tokyo, search restaurants, and open map apps during the trip. Unlimited data usage plans are available, with a flat fee from A$/C$12 per day. Unlike SIM cards, Telecom Square's WiFi routers support up to 10 to 14 WiFi-capable devices simultaneously. Thus, if a user shares a router with members of his/her group, the price per person will be much lower.
Customers are able to make an order online and pay with their local currency before their travel starts. In addition, they are able to pick up Telecom Square products at major airports in Japan. The company's dedicated staff will explain how to use them and answer any questions. It is Telecom Square's duty to guarantee all customers a pleasant trip in Japan.
