    Hi, when you say you stream music on the go, do you mean you use apps like tunein radio or 8tracks to play music? and the $68 plan gives you a smooth experience

      Hey Wai Zee, that’s correct, I use TuneIn to stream my music and don’t have issues on the $68 plan. I actually had more breaks in the streaming when using 3’s regular 3G service, which has faster speeds but worse access times.

    How about inter sms? Does the plan that? Thanks

    The plan is alright but remember to expect very slow data download especially youtube (error screen all the time reload) for everyday travelling and also tethering is not allowed.

      Yes, I wouldn’t use this plan for video or heavy downloading. It specifically says the speed is limited. But I find it still streams video as long as I’m not moving in a car. Didn’t receive any you tube errors, just might be choppy.

      You can try to use foxfi or another tethering app to get around them blocking tethering. I use my phone as a hotspot for my iPad on this plan that way.

    Do you know what happens if you break the contract?

    Is this plan still available? I’m moving to HK for 10 months and this looks great. Also, any idea how it would work beyond the 6 months? Would I have to renew for another 6 months?

    The plan is going up to $78 a month as of Oct. 1, 2014. You also have to sign up for 12 months instead of only six.
