Wondering which global SIM card is cheapest for use in Hong Kong? We recently looked at a range of them, and the clear answer was Buzzroam.

In Hong Kong, it costs only US$0.08/min (8c) to receive calls, or US$0.41/min (41c) to make them within Hong Kong or back to Australia.

Buzzroam is a Hong Kong-based company providing SIM cards issued by a Belgian mobile network. However, it provides an Australian phone number free of charge that your contacts can call, which redirects to your mobile wherever it is in the world, so the calling party doesn't have to pay international call rates.

You can also divert your regular mobile number to this number (at standard call rates, though for many people this will be included in their calling cap allowance at no additional cost).

The upfront cost for a Buzzroam SIM card starts at US$35 ($35.55) which includes US$10 ($10.16) calling credit. Postage is only US$4 ($4.06) to anywhere in the world, including Australia.
