    Question Best plan for a student traveling to study abroad in HK?

    I'm spending about 4 months in Hong Kong to study. Any suggestions as to what mobile-data plans I should look into? Prepaid or monthly.

    Prepaid is the way to go. Have a look at something like this from China mobile:
    https://www.hk.chinamobile.com/en/prepaid_services

    Click on "For local users" and then the first one. Buy online for $65 and then you get $78 worth of value. Then you can choose if you want slow but OK 3G for $90 per month, or faster 4G for $204 per month. There are other options in between as well. The other good thing is that monthly admin charges are only $2, not the ripoff $18 that most people on regular contracts are paying now.

    There are other options from other carriers as well such as CSL, Three, Smartone. Above is just one example.
