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:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
