Data only sim card

I have an upcoming cruise around Japan and need advice on a sim card.

Last time I bought one from a Bic store. It was a Japan Travel Sim powered by IIJmio. It worked quite well.

I have just noticed that the JAL ABC luggage forwarding counter in Haneda airport sells sims from Tre mobile. Are these sims ok? Coverage etc?

Thanks for any help

What's wrong with IIJMIO? The new version is cheaper than before, 2000 yen with 1.5GB of data, or 3000 yen with 3 GB https://www.yodobashi.com/?word=japan+travel+sim

>> JAL ABC Tre SIM

Their website has virtually no detail re. fair usage policy, what network provider it runs on, coverage map, etc. Not sure what they are trying to hide.

Hi bibimbob

Nothing wrong with IIJmio. I didn't know they were available at JAL ABC. They seem to promote the Tre card.

I just noticed at the bottom of their site they do have logos for IIJmio.

Thanks

They have the old, more expensive IIJMIO. Not sure if they are just slow to update their website, or they are still selling the more expensive old stock.
