Public Telephones in China

Updated:2008-06-03 17:50 | Source:

  Public telephones consist of IC telephones usually found by the roadside, but the advent of the mobile phone means that these are disappearing in Beijing and China, though perhaps not quite as quickly as in other parts of the world.

  The other public telephone option is to be found at cornershops and newspaper stands. You just pay the proprietor. These are a reasonable option if calling within the Beijing city limits, very expensive if you want to telephone outside of China. One option is to get an IP card and use it to call from one of these public telephones, but it doesn’t always work.

  There are also IP and IC public telephones in Post Offices in Beijing and the rest of China.
