Customer Registration

The first time you use the service, you will have to complete customer registration. After registration is complete, you may purchase a 24-hour plan to access the service. In order to register, you will need to have an environment where you can receive emails.

Once you complete customer registration, you can purchase access by connecting to SSID: SWS1day when inside a service area. Your access starts immediately after purchase. You will not be charged unless you purchase access.

You can change your registered customer information from the customer website.

Access History

From the customer website, you can view your access history over the last 3 months (A statement is attached to the credit card payment report email. The statement cannot be reissued and must be kept with care).

Usable Access Points

  • You can register and use the service from an access point that can connect to SSID: SWS1day.
  • While you are still within your access period, you can use the Internet from any access point that can connect to SSID: SWS1day.
  • We are working on updating our access points so that they are compatible with this service, so you may not be able to use the access point at some places marked with a SoftBank Wi-Fi Spot sticker.

Additionally, if you do not use the service within a 6-month period (including access to the customer website) your account will be cancelled and your customer information will be deleted.
