So this plan is gotten as a prepaid plan? Easily available??

I know that the 3 big Telcos have new plans for prepaid.
RMB 5 monthly subscription, without any perks.
Daily 500mb~1GB @ RMB1, Some RMB3 for unlimited.
Like said, some unlimited are throttled at 10GB or 100GB.

But for normal use, RMB5 base + 1GB/Day/RMB1.
It's good to keep this line active.

Only issue i had found is not all cities rolled out these plans for China Mobile.
China Mobile is the slowest to launch this plan.
I asked my relative to get the China Mobile King Card 移动王卡 for me at RMB9 per month. I hear about RMB5 per month but China Mobile in this place (Quanzhou, Fujian Province) does not have such RMB5 plan, rather they offer the RMB18 per Month plan for half of the price. I intend to keep this number for SMS verification of some Chinese apps and for use with my yearly short trip to China. Since I need oversea roaming I paid RMB200 up-front and later add RMB 50 through wechat 微信零钱.

It is charging RMB1 per day for 1GB data. Then you can buy data add-on like the 40RMB large data plan I mentioned. You can also get some perks by using their apps like getting +100MB data for free, 50minutes voice call for free, etc. I got the 40RMB data plan for free for the first month. Just need to remember to cancel the data plan after leaving China.

Edit to add:
So it is China Unicom which offers the RMB5 plan.
