    recommended mobile contracts?

    I am on a contract plan with 3, ends 28 Sept, from a 2 year plan. they gave me a call almost daily in the last couple of weeks about continuing, nothing really tempting, currently l pay 105HKD, for 1200mins, 1 GB data usage at 3G (glitch free youtube viewing.) then unlimited at ~128mbps, which makes watching youtube impossible.
    Can someone tell me of any companies that do minimum 3GB data usage at min 3G with ~1000mins (no need for anything more) a month for a similar or better price?
    I know the iphone 6s is coming out on 9 September, so may be tempted to pay for a more expensive plan and tied down for 2 years. Would telling this to 3, make a difference?

    thanks

    Cost and phone plan aside.... china mobile sucks. Coverage not nearly as good or reliable as SmarTone. I'm switching back

    SmarTone has an unlimited 3G-only deal for approx 100 HKD per month. It includes more minutes than I need. Reception is ok but not great.

    Just wait until they give you a better offer - if not then change.

    They always give better deals if you continue a contract as oppose to finding a new one.

    HI - can you advise under this plan if your phone uses 4G/LTE or only shows 3G all the time?

    Shows 3G only... I think it's tragically 3.5G which shows as H on my phone.

    But do you have a phone that supports 4G or LTE?
