Thanks for the informative follow up! Great information for the rest of usYes I was, throttled badly, even though they advertized differently. It was the Yodobashi house brand, but WirelessGate was the actual MVNO, using NTT DOCOMO. I actually went back to Yodobashi, and I can't say enough good about how they helped me out. Even though I had used the card for 3 weeks, they gave me my money back, and I bought one from IIJmio, the Japan Travel SIM. 2Gigs of data for up to 3 months for about 40$. They even said the WirelessGate ones were not performing well. With the IIJmio SIM, you don't even have to go online and register, don't have to give your credit card number, it was great. And fast, damn. I used up 200 meg in SpeedTests before I knew it! It peaked at 35Mbs down in downtown Tokyo. Really pleased; as long as you have LTE band 1 (2100) I'd recommend this card for people that will be in Japan for an extended time.
