JApanAn estimated 600,000 tourists, and 11,000 athletes from 206 nations are expected to descend to the Japanese capital next summer, all expecting to seamlessly connect, browse, like and share their experiences.

No stranger to major global events, Cellhire has extensive experience in providing global media companies, international broadcasters, athletes, sponsors, teams, and spectators with secure, high-speed data connections and reliable low-cost calling.  Following the recent Rugby tournament in Japan, Cellhire is well placed to provide individuals and organisations with local Japanese SIM cards, smartphones, mobile hotspots, satellite devices and other value-added telecoms services.

 At the heart of the action

Anticipating the large number of attendees expected to travel to Japan, Cellhire has relocated and upsized its central Tokyo offices, to better accommodate its customers during the event.

Cellhire, as ever, will be at the heart of the action to support customers with their event communications and equipment requirements.

Expert Support

As well as providing in-country support, Cellhire has an expert online technical support team available 24/7. SIM and device requirements can be delivered in advance of the event, and customers can make use of services such as address book programming to ensure they are action-ready upon arrival in Japan.


A Cellhire “Events Portal” is available to all customers and will allow visibility of connections during the event. The Portal will allow users to monitor and manage their connections, and view data usage on a line level throughout the games.
