I received query about GPRS today from Boris in Germany:
I like your weblog, lots of interesting information in it :-) Thanks for that!
I have read your messages about mobile phones in china. Now I am interested if you have any more details on GPRS. I have heard that there are different flat rates in China for about 200yuan / month with umlimited traffic and roaming within china. I really can’t believe that but maybe you can comment on that.
200 RMB / Month for unlimited traffic
The good news is, at the time this article is written, it is true. Here is what the Shanghai Mobile announced on their Chinese website.
Monthly fee: 0 RMB, then 0.03 RMB/KB
Monthly fee: 20 RMB for 1MB, 0.01RMB/KB
Monthly fee: 100 RMB for 20MB, 0.01RMB/KB
Monthly fee: 200 RMB for unlimited GPRS access
There is no roaming fee if you use GPRS in other cities.
