Back from China! To anyone who cares, both the m1 passport data and Starhub prepaid sim are able to access facebook and google in China

The network is stable and good even on remote mountain top

Changi WIFI egg is not able to access Facebook & Google ! HTHS!
Hello there, I am heading to Shanghai tomorrow. Can someone please confirm that starhub with data autoroaming can "bypass" the great firewall of China?

Any SIM card that is roaming in China is able to access Facebook Google WhatsApp.
So yes. ST Dataroam, SH Happy Prepaid, M1 Data Passport.
All three can access

I used the starhub postpaid datatravel asia pacific 3GB ($20) plan when I was in Yunnan in November. Connection was rather good in Lijiang and Dali, but I had abit of spotty connection in Tiger Leaping Gorge at some parts on the trail.

For those that sign up VPN. Please remember to sign in to your account and make sure that auto renewal is turned off! I just checked my monthly statement that i was charged monthly for the past 6 months for this ExpressVPN.. i was shocked and i quickly signed in to my account to check since i only sign it up for my Beijing trip back in May for only a month usage. Haiz.. paying the VPN for nothing for 6 months

IF you do not have a PostPaid ST or M1 or SH.

If you feel Paying the amount to get M1 Data Passport is abit too expensive, or your local data plan is not that great to pay $25 for China.
Basic plans starts from 3GB?

If you feel paying the amount to get ST ReadyRoam is abit too expensive.
For China, it's $20 for 1GB for 30 Days.

If you feel paying the amount to get SH Data Travel is abit too expensive.
For China, it's $15 for 2GB for 30 Days or $20 for 3GB for 30 Days.

SH Happy Prepaid HappyRoam Cost:
$20 for 3.6GB for 30 Days
$15 for 2.4GB for 30 Days
$10 for 1.2GB for 30 Days
