If you’re a Chinese student, expat, or traveller in the UK – or simply have friends or family in China – there’s a good chance you already know about CMLink (owned by China Mobile), but what you might not know is that it now offers 5G.
CMLink now offers 5G data on the majority of its plans, and you can get a monthly allowance of up to 100GB – so not as much as the various networks that offer unlimited data (like EE, Three, Vodafone and O2, among various MVNOs) but still a decent amount.
CMLink also uses EE’s network to offer 5G, which is good news, because that was the first UK network with a 5G service, and its coverage is likely therefore more widespread than rivals.
An international focus
But why choose CMLink over EE or another network? Well, beyond competitive prices (with 5G plans starting from £5.99 per month) and one-month plans (so you’re not tied in), CMLink offers plans with 1000 minutes that you can use to call mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Australia, Canada, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, and the US.
You can also use up to 10GB of data when roaming not just across much of Europe, but also in mainland China and Hong Kong. Plus, its plans include local minutes that can be used when in the EU, mainland China or Hong Kong.
You can also link a China Mobile mainland or Hong Kong number to your CMLink number, so you can get calls and texts all in one place.
You can probably see from all these perks why we say that CMLink is especially good for those with ties to China, but given its decent prices and international minutes to a variety of locations, it could also be a good fit for other users.
