Reviews for Platinum Pocket Wifi Buddy

I made a huge mistake, but Japan Wifi Buddy saved me
I inputted the wrong flight info and realized that I couldn't get my wifi router when I had landed. I contacted Japan Wifi Buddy and they were super helpful! They were able to reroute a router to the place that I was staying during the trip!
The router worked perfectly and excellent while we were in Japan. The router lasted most of the day at Disney Sea and needed a quick recharge from a portable battery charger. I think it needed a recharge because we were inside the rides (no signal) and it was using a lot of power hunting for a signal.
All of the other days we never had battery issues.

We used the Platinum WiFi Buddy system during our travels in Japan from Tokyo to Kyoto to Hiroshima. The system worked well throughout the journey even on the Shinkasen. But we learned it has a few limitations..first make sure only one person is using it at time as the battery is the limiting factor on how long the system will work. My wife was the primary user but if I wanted to get internet access I would let her know and immediately turn off my wifi access when I was done. I was told that you had to completely shut down the Wifi buddy when recharging at night, but we had access to the hotel internet so that wasn't a big deal. The company sends a spare battery for day use...so when we could not access the internet we checked the battery level which was usually low and we hooked up the spare battery to the system...The WiFi buddy was indispensable during our travels and I highly recommend it to anyone traveling in Japan. I would use this company again if I traveled back in Japan.

Reliable and fast
There were some issues with getting disconnected at some areas, but rebooting the router resolved the problem. Internet speed was really fast especially around urban areas and overall the wifi has been very useful throughout our stay in Japan. Oh the staff were very helpful in answering our request and queries, thank you very much!
JapanWifiBuddy is pretty much the best way to get online in Japan.
