    Prepaid sim card for Hong Kong

    Just thought to share this information.

    We visited Hong Kong 2 weeks ago and picked up the One2Free prepaid sim card - the price is no longer HKD $88, but now $100 (cash/credit card was fine, and they dont need your ID or anything).
    The 1010 shop at the airport is now located on the arrivals floor (was on departure floor 2 years ago).
    7 day unlimited internet is still $78 of your credit so you now have $22 to spend on local calls

    As an aside - I bought 2 sim cards (for wife and myself). One nano sim sized for the iphone 6, which seemed to switch to 4G, and one micro sim sized card. I was able to use this in both my LG G3 and my unlocked Telstra 4G wifi device (ZTE MF91).
    The personal hotspot worked fine for both phones (although I had to setup the APN for the LG)

    When I came back to Aus, I found it does roaming on Telstra
    Haven't figured out what to test the remaining credits on yet.

    Speeds were good whilst in HK - I got my Lollipop update whilst in HK, and I swear the 500mb? download came down faster than it would on my Optus cable internet here.

    The hotel (Cosmopolitan) offered complimentary internet via a "Handy" device, that was 3G - unreliable and unbearably slow when it did work.

    good to know for future use. go to HK pretty often and last few times ended up just using hotel icon's handy which i didn't find too bad actually. even with 2 devices logged into its hotspot we still had a decent connection, though the battery didn't last half a day.$100HKD is cheap...

    I asked a friend who lives locally a couple of days ago and he recommended a China Mobile voice/data package for HKD80, good for 180 days.

    There is a recent comparison including this and other offers here

    The tourist SIM cards that were being flogged at the airport looked like much poorer value.

    Cheers skip
