    most big airports have SIM card shops in terminals. T3 @ LHR has SIM card vending machine near luggage carousels.

    For HK, 7-11 sells cheap 4G SIM card packages (eg HK$45 for basic China Mobile SIM).

    Buy dongle from anywhere but phone company (!) Telstra dongle (Huawei) bought in Perth last year only allows use of Telstra SIM but charges A$3 per 1mb (FFS!) outside of Oz!
    Dongle as in those USB ones? I'd prefer a fully mobile hotspot. Or if that's what you mean, how much did it cost?

    Dongle as in wifi router for all purpose - by USB thingy you mean a wifi stick.

    This is what I got - cost ca HK$500 - a hotspot dongle:

    Thanks. At that price makes sense to buy. The cheapest rental I can find is $500 for the trip’s duration. If I get my own mobile WiFi and data SIM it will have paid for itself in two trips.
