    The cheapest and fastest data in HK for $33?

    Hey all,

    Been using China Mobile for years.. when I came back early ths year I bought a new sim pack from them.. $199 for 18gb, can use within one year. Kinda pricey, since I always have to top up within 10 years. 18gb runs out super fast.

    Was in Park n Shop last week and saw they were offering 3 HK sim packs- 50gb for only $33, which is absolute peanuts. I got one pack and currently using it now, it's fast enough for social media and streaming movies and stuff on YouTube.

    Are there any other cheaper packages out there? Or $33hkd for 50gb the cheapest?

    I saw 100s of sim packs at those street vendors in Sham Shui Po but never tried any of them.

    I changed my routers sim card from birdie to the SoSim. With 50 GB unlimited or 60 after the first month, it's much better for me than with birdie.
    I also consider changing my phone from birdie to SoSim, but unfortunately I can't take over my old phone number...
    Have not heard of anything cheaper than SoSim yet.

    Are the recharge prices the same? Or is it just a cheap price to start and then more expensive when you want to add more data/calls ?

    No, it's the same.. just top up another 33 bucks. My local frd said Park n Shop used to offer a even cheaper sim.. 20 something for 60 or 80gb, but they discontinued it, think it was a student sim.

    How much are you paying for the SoSim?

    I have been using SoSim for around half a year now, with a router for SIM. It's good enough, since I don't want to have 2 years contract. Just top up $33 every month.

    Dumb question. How can you figure out the mobile phone number and top-up on a laptop?

    I plugged into into a laptop with LTE. It seems to work, no idea what the number is and how to top up. My laptop takes micro-sim not nano-sim, so I don't want to punch it out too much and put into into the iphone. I can probably buy a new SIM every month, as the store is right outside the office.

    I tried downloading the app -> my apple store is not Hong Kong.
