The Novatel Wireless MiFi 2372 has landed all around the world on various mobile broadband services to allow users to get web access using a 3G hotspot. KDDI Japan has now announced that the MiFi 2372 is available in Japan as a rental product for Japanese consumers and business users that are traveling internationally.
Apparently the MiFi itself is included with a rental plan for data, which is what we would call pay as you go plans here in the US. The MiFi is the one we are used to with support for up to five different WiFi devices at one time including laptops, tablets, phones and more.
The MiFi will work on networks that operate on 800/850MHz, 1900MHz and 2100MHz allowing for global roaming. The device offers connectivity speeds of up to 7.2Mbps. The service for the MiFi starts at 1,280JPY per day and the rentals can be ordered on the KDDI rental site.
