No usage fee is incurred even if you download large files such as videos.

A stable connection enables smooth transmission of large amounts of data
"Public Wi-Fi is often too slow for connecting to the Internet". Have you ever experienced this problem?
d Wi-Fi provides smooth connection for viewing and downloading videos and accessing the cloud from outside using DOCOMO's stable connection. You can use the Internet while you're out in town without any stress.
Simultaneous Connections are Possible from Multiple Devices
You can use various Wi-Fi compatible devices such as PCs, tablets, and gaming devices in addition to smartphones.
Up to five devices can be connected simultaneously.
- The number of devices is identified with MAC address.
Communications may be intercepted or monitored at a public Wi-Fi SPOT that are not encrypted. With DOCOMO's Wi-Fi service, security is enhanced in a radio section. This assures a secure connection.
- Access point devices support WPA2.
- IEEE802.1X is used as the authentication method.
How d Wi-Fi Security Works
The d Wi-Fi offers wireless security between an access point and a wireless LAN device.
When transmitting important information such as personal information through the Internet, we recommend to use additional security such as TLS or VPN*2.
TLS and Internet VPNs ensure security even in wireless LAN areas, and therefore they are able to protect your connection even if the wireless LAN encryption is decoded.
- When you log in to d Wi-Fi, TLS is used for communication between your device and a DOCOMO's server. This encrypts your d ACCOUNT and d Wi-Fi password information to prevent data from being intercepted or tampered with.
- d Wi-Fi SPOTs support IEEE802.1X technology which supports automatic authentication with robust security.
You can configure it on your device.
- You may not use some VPN technologies as d Wi-Fi allocates a private address to your device.
Content Filters Option
A subscription to the Content Filters Option, which blocks access to harmful websites, is recommended for minors.
d Wi-Fi SPOTs
The service is available at various locations in Japan, such as train stations, airports, cafes, and convenience stores.
A d Wi-Fi SPOT is indicated by "0001docomo" or "0000docomo" in the network name (SSID).
