As mentioned by reader Will, the Smartone $78 plan is now increased from $68, called the GoodCare Plan. BOO, inflation! Not sure why it’s called GoodCare, are the other plans not as good or caring? But honestly it’s still really cheap for unlimited data. If you are a HK resident with HKID card you can sign-up. There’s a 12 months contract which isn’t too bad. Smartone service is really reliable and I always get a signal, even on the MTR during rush hour, which I didn’t get with my previous service carrier Three (3).
Data speed is limited to 384 Kbps which I find perfectly suitable for anything I need to do, except downloading large files which takes longer, and watching videos. Videos will play, but sometimes lag if you’re moving. It says no tethering but through my phone I’ve been able to tether. Nexus 5, USA version.
The price doesn’t include the MTR $12 fee, so you’ll end up paying $90 each month after the fee. This is a SIM card only plan, you’ll need your own phone.
Here’s all of the details:
