Registration is straight forward.
Immediate connection with Softbank 4G as soon as I turned on the phone in Japan.
My phone with M1 Data Passport had better coverage than the local Mobile Wifi Router provided by my accommodation provider – covered everywhere including tunnels, on Shinkansen, most impressively, on the ski slopes at Gala Yuzawa - where we sent photos and videos of our skiing endeavours, also crystal clear Whatsapp calls from the ski slopes.
Compared to WIFI Hotspots – although available, OFTEN NOT available when you need it. It also “time” out, drains battery, and does not allow mobility…..and NO mountain-top coverage!!!
Apps used on trip – Whatsapp, Email, Maps, Chrome Browser etc.
Price – bargain price S$10. Similar tourist data SIM is around S$36 for 5 days.
Plan Used – 1gb Mobile Broadband SIM (FREE with my M1 Home Broadband), instead of my voice line, because my friend ALSO used this SIM on her trip after my trip – total days used 10 days in Japan…ALL for S$10 … What more can I Say? Absolutely super product offering…please keep adding more destinations!
