SIM Cards in Hong Kong: The Best Prepaid Plans | 2024 Guide

Hong Kong – known for being a financial center, neon lights & its skyline.

The country, territory, city-state, Special Administrative Region, or however you want to refer to it, is also known for its (street) food.

While Hong Kong has many impressive skyscrapers, just looking at them is not the only thing to do there.

You can even go to Disneyland in Hong Kong… but there are more attractions.

For example, heading to the top of Victoria Peak (Mount Austin) will give you a fantastic view of the city, especially when the sun is setting.

If you love cheap food, which my boyfriend certainly does (he is from Hong Kong, by the way), Temple Street Night Market.

And if you are into hiking, go on a hike on Dragon's Back (Shek O Peak).

As you can see, there is something for everything in Hong Kong.

What you should not do, in many cases, is roam internationally in Hong Kong – International roaming can be expensive.

That is why I always recommend local prepaid SIM cards, eSIMs & even travel eSIMs so that you can enjoy low rates for data, minutes & SMS.

Luckily, SIM cards are not too expensive in Hong Kong – the same applies to mobile data rates.

So, how much do SIM cards cost in Hong Kong?

You can get a Hong Kong SIM card for between 33 HKD (4.20 USD) and 298 HKD (38.10 USD) from China Mobile (CMHK), CSL Mobile (by HKT), 3 (Three) & SmarTone in their stores (+1O1O stores for CSL SIM cards). Resellers, like 7-Eleven and Circle K, sell SIM cards too. SIM cards are also sold at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG).

If you are flying into Hong Kong International Airport, click on the link above to read about the SIM card options at the to save some reading time.

Now, these prices may seem a bit high, especially compared to countries in Southeast Asia.

But they are still (way) cheaper than international roaming.

In this guide, I will go over everything you need to know about buying a SIM card in Hong Kong. Let's go.

What is the Best SIM Card in Hong Kong?

If you want to buy the best SIM card in Hong Kong, I recommend going with China Mobile (CMHK) or CSL Mobile. China Mobile has the fastest 4G/LTE & 5G NR speeds. CSL Mobile has more attractive data-featured plans.

Phone Travel Wiz Approved Seal

Hong Kong has four mobile operators offering prepaid services easily accessible to travelers:

  • China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK – 中國移動香港有限公司)
  • CSL Mobile by Hong Kong Telekom (HKT (香港電訊有限公司) – 香港移動通訊有限公司) – includes 7-Connect & Club SIM
  • 3 (Three) Hong Kong (3香港) – includes SoSIM
  • SmarTone Hong Kong (數碼通)

Anyone 16 or older living in or visiting Hong Kong can buy a Hong Kong SIM card with some restrictions, and you do have to comply with Hong Kong's SIM card registration regulations.

And if you are younger than 16, you can still get a SIM card if your parents buy one for you (in their name).

The main restriction is that you can only have ten active SIM cards PER mobile operator in your name in Hong Kong.

So if you somehow need 40 prepaid SIM cards, you can… but I bet questions will be asked 🗿.

I am not sure if you get ten SIM cards per sub-brand too (such as Club SIM and 7-Connect by CSL), but you are free to try out.

Besides those restrictions, you are free to use Hong Kong (tourist) SIM cards.

Regarding the registration requirements, you must show your passport at the point of sale. Or you can do self-registration online (most salespeople want you to do registration on your own).

You can get a Hong Kong SIM card in China Mobile (CMHK), 1O1O & CSL (both for CSL SIM cards), 3 (Three) & SmarTone stores. Resellers, like 7-Eleven and Circle K convenience stores, also sell SIM cards. It is also possible to get SIM cards at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG).

You can expect to pay the following for Hong Kong SIM cards:

  • China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK): 33 HKD, 48 HKD, 80 HKD, 98 HKD & 198 HKD
  • CSL Mobile by Hong Kong Telecom: 48 HKD, 59 HKD, 78 HKD, 100 HKD, 180 HKD & 298 HKD (includes 7-Connect & Club SIM)

Be aware that SIM cards sold at airports can be more expensive than the prices mentioned above.

(Travel) eSIMs for Hong Kong

The use of (travel) eSIMs has exploded in recent years.

Not only do more phones have eSIM capability (some US-sold iPhones are eSIM-only), but the number of providers adopting technology has proliferated as well.

This includes local mobile operators offering eSIM and platforms selling eSIMs (travel eSIMs).

If you want a local Hong Kong eSIM, you can get one from 3 (Three).

But remember that you have to comply with Hong Kong's SIM card registration regulations, even when you get a Hong Kong eSIM.

If you do not wish to deal with registration for whatever reason, like privacy, consider getting a travel eSIM for Hong Kong.

Many eSIM providers have eSIMs for Hong Kong only, eSIMs for multiple Asian destinations & even global eSIMs, which I discuss in my Hong Kong eSIM buying guide.

Buying an eSIM for Hong Kong Guide (logos of SimOptions, Nomad, Asialink, Discover+, Hkmobile, Holafly, Alosim & Airalo)

Here is a quick introduction to your Hong Kong travel eSIM options:

  • Airalo: Hong Kong (Hong Kong only), Asialink (14 countries in Asia) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + up to 200 worldwide minutes & 200 worldwide SMS)
  • Alosim: Hong Kong & Asia Five Pack
  • Holafly: Hong Kong – all variants include unlimited data
  • Nomad: Hong Kong, APAC (15 or 20 countries, depending on the variant) & Global (109 or 139 countries, depending on the variant)
  • SimOptions: Asia (32 countries)

And I know you love discounts, so use one of these codes when getting a travel eSIM:

  • Airalo: NEWMAY15 for 15% off (if you have never bought an Airalo eSIM before). Otherwise, AIRALOMAY10 for 10% off (for existing users) – only the first 3000 users can redeem either discount code)
  • Alosim: PTW for 5% off (as many times as you wish for as many eSIMs as you want)
  • Holafly: PHONETRAVELWIZ for 5% off (as many times as you wish for as many eSIMs as you want)
  • Nomad: ADU123 for 3 USD off (on your first-ever Nomad order only)

China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK – 中國移動香港有限公司)

China Mobile Hong Kong (中國移動香港有限公司), just China Mobile but also known as CMHK, is the largest mobile operator in Hong Kong.

As the name implies, it is run by China Mobile from China – the largest mobile operator in China and worldwide, with around 950 million subscribers.

But all Chinese mobile operators, including China Telecom and China Unicom, are run by the Chinese government because… well… reasons.

Anyway, China Mobile has the best overall network in Hong Kong.

China Mobile uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: 1800 MHz
  • 3G: 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 900 MHz (Band 8), 1800 MHz (Band 3), 2100 MHz (Band 1), 2300 MHz (Band 40) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)
  • 5G NR: 3500 MHz (n78) & 4700 MHz (n79)
  • VoLTE: Yes
  • VoWiFi: Yes

This is what you will learn about China Mobile:

Coverage – China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK)

China Mobile has near-perfect coverage in Hong Kong.

While this is true for all the other Hong Kong mobile operators, it is still remarkable.

Below is China Mobile's coverage map produced by Speedtest:

SIM Card Price – China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK)

You can get a China Mobile MySIM SIM card for 33 HKD or 48 HKD or a regular China Mobile SIM card between 48 HKD to 198 HKD in (some) China Mobile stores or from resellers, like 7-Eleven and Circle K. SIM cards are also sold at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG).

If you are flying into Hong Kong International Airport, click on the link above to read about the SIM card options at the to save some reading time.

You can get these SIM cards in China Mobile stores, but salespeople will often direct you to the nearest 7-Eleven anyway.

Finally, you have the China Mobile Hong Kong Tourist SIM card, sold for 88 HKD giving you 80 GB @ 21 Mbps, unlimited data between 23:00 – 7:00 (also @ 21 Mbps), 1000 local minutes & 10 local SMS for 30 days (sold at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) only).

Do note that China Mobile has many more SIM card lines, including SIM cards for Hong Kong and Macau, Greater China (China, Hong Kong & Macau + Taiwan at times) & travel SIM cards (that sometimes can also be used in Hong Kong).

I only focus on local SIM cards in my guides to make things easier for you (else, I would have discussed way too many SIM cards in my Macau and Thailand SIM card buying guides too – the latter already has 20+ SIM cards per mobile operator).

China Mobile Hong Kong Travel SIM Cards

Often, these Hong Kong+ SIM cards are more expensive than the local ones, but they may have more generous starter perks, including more data to be used in Hong Kong.

Still, I will only mention the local ones.

Finally, you have SIM cards targeting migrant workers (although the mobile operators refer to them as Domestic Helpers most of the time), including the Kabayan (the Philippines), My Friend (Pakistan and Thailand) & Rekanan (Indonesia) lines.

China Mobile Hong Kong SIM Cards for Migrant Workers (Rekanan, Kabayan & My Friend)

These SIM cards, and the plans offered with them, are often cheaper than the regular China Mobile SIM cards, but they often have (severe) speed restrictions, which makes them not worth it for travelers (but Filipino, Indonesian, Pakistani & Thai visitors could consider them – they include cheap calls and SMS back to those countries).

  • Find out how much SIM cards cost in every country, including data-only SIM cards and tourist SIM cards, offered by each mobile operator + information about starter benefits (lookup tool)

While China Mobile does have eSIMs, they are (currently) not offered to prepaid customers.

You may want to get a travel eSIM for Hong Kong, which can be cheaper than getting a SIM card from China Mobile (in some cases).

Especially when getting an eSIM covering popular Asian destinations if you do not stay in just Hong Kong or a global eSIM valid for up to a year if you want one eSIM to work practically worldwide.

My Hong Kong eSIM buying guide analyzes various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide.

Here is a quick introduction to them:

  • Airalo: Hkmobile (Hong Kong only), Asialink (14 countries in Asia) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + call and text feature) – use code NEWMAY15 (15% off – first-time users only) or AIRALOMAY10 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Hong Kong & Asia (five countries) – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Hong Kong – these eSIMs have unlimited data – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Hong Kong, APAC (up to 20 countries) & Global (up to 139 countries) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)

But let's continue with China Mobile for now.

Note that China Mobile offers VoLTE (Voice over LTE (4G)) if your phone supports it and you have enabled it in the settings.

Oh, you can also use VoWiFi (Voice over WiFi).

My Review – China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK)

I had the chance to try out China Mobile in early 2023.

It is the country's largest, best & fastest mobile operator (according to reports and my own experiences).

And prepaid users can use 5G NR as well (if you use the MySIM 5G SIM card like I did).

CSL Mobile by Hong Kong Telecom (HKT (香港電訊有限公司)) is the second-largest mobile operator in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Telecom has numerous sub-brands, including 1O1O, 7-Connect, Club SIM, CSL Mobile of course & SUN Mobile.

CSL Mobile is Hong Kong Telecom's leading brand, so it will get the most focus in this section.

But I will also write about 7-Connect and Club SIM.

Club SIM Hong Kong Logo

Why not about 1O1O and SUN Mobile?

1O1O is Hong Kong Telecom's premium brand, focusing solely on postpaid customers.

1O1O Hong Kong Logo

SUN Mobile does have a prepaid line, Flex-Mobile, but it is expensive (compared to the other offers) and throttles speeds @ 1.5 Mbps (slow!).

Worry not; you have plenty of options with CSL Mobile itself anyway.

My Review – CSL Mobile

I had to chance to try out CSL Mobile in January 2023.

It is the Hong Kong mobile operator with the most sub-brands and the most data-featured prepaid options in the country.

While CSL Mobile has the best 5G NR availability with China Mobile Hong Kong, prepaid customers could not yet use its 5G NR network.

Even then, I had a good experience with CSL Mobile… but I actually expected more (because I have high standards for Hong Kong, lol).

3 (Three) Hong Kong (3香港), just 3, is the third-largest mobile operator in Hong Kong.

3 Hong Kong is a popular white label for travel SIM cards and eSIMs (re)sellers.

While you may not know it, it is highly probable that your travel eSIM is using 3 Hong Kong.

Three, as a company, is active in Austria, Denmark, Hong Kong, Ireland, Indonesia (as Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison), Italy (as Wind Tre), Macau, Sweden & the United Kingdom.

3 uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: N/A – shut down in September 2021
  • 3G: 900 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 900 MHz (Band 8), 1800 MHz (Band 3), 2100 MHz (Band 1), 2300 MHz (Band 40) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)
  • 5G NR: 700 MHz (n28), 3500 MHz (n78) & 4700 MHz (n79) – not for prepaid customers (yet)
  • VoLTE: Yes (but not for prepaid customers)
  • VoWiFi: Yes (but not for prepaid customers)

Coverage – 3 Hong Kong

3 has near-perfect coverage in Hong Kong.

While this is true for all the other Hong Kong mobile operators, it is still remarkable.

Below is 3's coverage map produced by Speedtest:

SIM Card Price – 3 Hong Kong

You can get a 3 SIM card for 48 HKD or 98 HKD, a SoSIM SIM card for 33 HKD, or 3 4G LTE Data Package SIM Cards for 168 HKD, 248 HKD & 298 HKD in 3 stores or from resellers, like 7-Eleven, Circle K & Watsons. SIM cards are not sold at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG).

If you are flying into Hong Kong International Airport, click on the link above to read about the SIM card options at the to save some reading time.

The default 3 SIM cards, called DIY, are sold together with plans (starting from 10 HKD).

But you will be required to spend at least 50 HKD in most cases (which can be a plan purchase or 50 HKD credit top-up).

3 All-In-One SIM/General Prepaid SIM cards cost 48 HKD or 98 HKD, with 48 HKD or 98 HKD credit, respectively.

You also have the (3) SoSIM SIM card. For 33 HKD, you get 50 GB (@ 42 Mbps) and 5000 local minutes for 60 days – the most popular 3 SIM card.

They can only be purchased at PARKnSHOP and Watsons.

Short-term visitors and tourists can also get the 3 HK Visitor Prepaid SIM – 3's tourist offering.

For 128 HKD, you get unlimited data, unlimited on-net minutes & 500 local SMS for 3 days (if you dial *127*388#).

It is possible to get a 3 (DIY) eSIM for the same price as a regular SIM card (but this does not count for SoSIM).

You can consider getting a travel eSIM for Hong Kong, which can, in specific scenarios, be cheaper than getting a SIM card from 3.

Especially if you get an Asia eSIM (for when you visit at least two or more supported Asian countries) or a global eSIM (for frequent travelers visiting multiple continents).

In my Hong Kong eSIM buying guide, I analyze various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide.

But I will introduce them here quickly:

  • Airalo: Hkmobile (Hong Kong only), Asialink (14 countries in Asia) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + up to 200 worldwide minutes & 200 worldwide SMS) – use code NEWMAY15 (15% off – first-time users only) or AIRALOMAY10 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Hong Kong & Asia (five countries) – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Hong Kong – include unlimited data – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Hong Kong , APAC (15 or 20 countries, depending on the variant) & Global (109 or 139 countries, depending on the variant) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)

Once again, check out my Hong Kong eSIM buying guide to learn more about these eSIM options.

For now, I will continue with 3.

Note that 3 offers VoLTE (Voice over LTE (4G)) if your phone supports it and you have enabled it in the settings.

Oh, you can also use VoWiFi (Voice over WiFi).

My Review – 3 Hong Kong

I had the chance to try out 3 in early 2023.

3 is often the worst mobile operator in the countries it operates in (except for Ireland somehow).

And that is (unfortunately) the case in Hong Kong too.

While 3 often had an excellent 3G network, its 4G/LTE network greatly lacked.

But with the rollout of 5G NR, 3 has been buying a lot of spectrum to build a fantastic network.

And the same is happening in Hong Kong.

Unfortunately, 5G NR could not be used by prepaid customers when I was in the country, so I was on its 4.5G network (which was often a glorified 3G network in terms of speed).

SmarTone Hong Kong (數碼通)

SmarTone Hong Kong (數碼通), just SmarTone, is the smallest mobile operator in Hong Kong.

SmarTone is also active in Macau (but the prepaid offering is sad over there).

SmarTone uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: N/A – shut down in October 2022
  • 3G: 850 MHz & 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 900 MHz (Band 8), 1800 MHz (Band 3), 2100 MHz (Band 1) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)
  • 5G NR: 700 MHz (n28), 850 MHz (n5), 900 MHz (n8), 2100 MHz (n1), 3500 MHz (n78) & 4700 MHz (n79)
  • VoLTE: Yes

Coverage – SmarTone Hong Kong

SmarTone has near-perfect coverage in Hong Kong.

While this is true for all the other Hong Kong mobile operators, it is still remarkable.

However, SmarTone is lacking in 5G NR reach and availability.

Below is SmarTone's coverage map produced by Speedtest:

SIM Card Price – SmarTone Hong Kong

You can get a SmarTone SIM card for 48 HKD, 65 HKD & 118 HKD in SmarTone stores (1/2) or from (some) resellers, like 7-Eleven and Circle K. SIM cards are not sold at Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) anymore.

If you are flying into Hong Kong International Airport, click on the link above to read about the SIM card options at the to save some reading time.

SmarTone Hong Kong SIM Cards

The 48 HKD SIM card automatically has the 1 HKD an hour Always On data plan enabled, charging you only 1 HKD for “unlimited” data for an hour (up to 5 GB a day @ 21 Mbps).

The 65 HKD SIM card featured 5 GB a day @ 21 Mbps and 2000 local minutes for 30 days.

The 118 HKD SIM card includes 118 HKD credit, which you can use to buy a plan (and I recommend purchasing one immediately so you do not waste your credit).

Do note that SmarTone has many more SIM card lines, including SIM cards for Hong Kong and Macau, Greater China (China, Hong Kong & Macau + Taiwan at times) & travel SIM cards (that sometimes can also be used in Hong Kong).

SmarTone Hong Kong Greater China & Travel SIM Cards

I only focus on local SIM cards in my guides to make things easier for you (else, I would have discussed way too many SIM cards in my Macau and Thailand SIM card buying guides too – the latter already has 20+ SIM cards per mobile operator).

Dial *111*13*1# to change the system's language to English (*111*13*2# for Cantonese (default) or *111*13*3# for Mandarin).

Dial *111*359# to see your SmarTone phone number.

SIM Card Prices Worldwide Tool by Phone Travel Wiz

While SmarTone does have eSIMs, they are (currently) not offered to prepaid customers.

You may want to get a travel eSIM for Hong Kong, which can be cheaper than getting a SIM card from SmarTone (in some cases).

Especially when getting an eSIM covering popular Asian destinations if you do not stay in just Hong Kong or a global eSIM valid for up to a year if you want one eSIM to work practically worldwide.

My Hong Kong eSIM buying guide analyzes various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide.

Here is a quick introduction to them:

  • Airalo: Hkmobile (Hong Kong only), Asialink (14 countries in Asia) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + call and text feature) – use code NEWMAY15 (15% off – first-time users only) or AIRALOMAY10 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Hong Kong & Asia (five countries) – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Hong Kong – these eSIMs have unlimited data – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Hong Kong, APAC (up to 20 countries) & Global (up to 139 countries) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)

For more information, such as the prices and data allowances, check out my Hong Kong eSIM buying guide.

But let's continue with SmarTone for now.

Note that SmarTone offers VoLTE (Voice over LTE (4G)) if your phone supports it and you have enabled it in the settings.

Heck, you can even use VoNR (Voice over New Radio (5G)), which is still rare (but only if your phone supports 5G NR, of course).

Oh, you can also use VoWiFi (Voice over WiFi).

My Review – SmarTone Hong Kong

I had the chance to try out SmarTone in early 2023.

It is the country's smallest mobile operator, but it has an impressive network with (extremely) fast (5G NR) speeds.

And prepaid users can use 5G NR as well (if you use the 118 HKD SIM card like I did).
