I'm going to China next month, so I was wondering does anyone here know of any "good" mobile data deals in China? I'd prefer to use one of their Sim cards (depending on which network is cheapest).

Is there something like NZD$20 ($100 yuan (china dollars)) for 1gb data for one month? etc?

Thanks in advance!

China Unicom has prepaid 3G monthly plans, just don't tell them how long you're staying I'm in China if you're only there for a short stay.

When I was there I think I used China Unicom - were a few hoops to jump through but with the help of friend based there got a prepaid SIM card setup. There is a bit of paperwork I recall.
