Q: Who is the best value internet provider in China?

I only spend 3 to 4 months a year here. We have just moved in to a new apartment and I was wondering where I can get the best value internet from. We will have two people using whenever we are in China but could share a WiFi dongle as we each spend at most 2 or so hours a day on the net. Not a lot of downloading but a bit of streaming (similar to NBA TV for me) and just general surfing and some low level games for her. She does not understand data limits etc so I am finding it hard to get around the best value plan for us.

 

Can anyone suggest what would be cheaper. A WiFi dongle with a decent download per month limit Vs a yearly subscription to an ADSL service.

 

Advice appreciated.

If you can live the first day after arriving in China on each trip, then I would go for a normal ADLS type connection. They can be paid on a monthly basis

As far as I can tell there isn't any mobile data plans in China where venturing into streaming video would not make you hit the monthly data limit pretty quickly.

^ ADSL*

 

The best value for your money depends on the promotions going on at the time. You can sometimes get 12 Mbit for 650 RMB for 6 months, or a little more than double that for 12 months.

 

We got promotional advertisements at our apartment complex all the time. I'm not sure if you can get those inside a gated community, 'cause I haven't seen any here in my new place.

A:I'd say no, you don't need working permit to work for Chinese Co. remotely, i.e. by not residing in China.Best advice on that you'll get from your employer. https://www.china-briefing.com/news/china-foreigners-work-permit-application-and-renewal-recent-changes/ See this part: However, because a valid resident permit is one of the primary requirements for the renewal of a work permit, without a valid residence permit, expatriates stranded outside China may not be able to renew their work permits anymore. ... or in other words, if you don't reside in China, work permit is also not required. Some more details about Work visa requirements .. https://www.hongdaservice.com/blog/china-work-visa-requirements-what-you-may-not-know -- icnif77
