Overall rating

Easy “installation” everything works quickly and easily. And around 1200% cheaper than the Vodafone data package. Which is really a disgrace. Thank you very much, everything is great 👍🏼

Very easy activation and quality network! A possible improvement would be single-device activation (currently requires scanning a QR code).

I activated my eSim before I started traveling. When I arrived in Japan, I had direct access to the Internet. I had internet everywhere!

Setting up the eSIM worked without any problems immediately after booking

Brilliant! Setting up was very easy and reception is problem-free.
