Internet provider services are also with the Cell phone providers.  In Beijing, as in the rest of China, the three major providers are China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom.  They have many different plans, and who is the best is hard to state because it is totally subjective for each customer.

You can get many different plans, fom a home phone line, to home phone line and Internet services, to those two plus a cell phone.

Within Internet, you can get different speeds, like 1 M, 2 M, 3 M and 4 M.

I have a plan that gives me a regular telephone at my apartment, a cell phone with almost 400 minutes of usage per month, plus 4 M Internet connection, and I pay 118 Rmb for all three per month on a year contract.  I have China Mobile, and I am satisfied with their service.  Not perfect, but not bad either.

Be aware, during evening hours, Internet in China is flooded with users, and it is slow.  ZEarly morning hours are the best ones to surf.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
