I failed to see your conspicous definition for the words: Crappy and unreliable.

Ironically, 100% of the 120 million users in China use broadband connections, in US 40% of internet users are still using dial ups. Damn Chinese internet connections must be "crap".

That is true, you can't access some political websites and all porn websites.
Btw, even when I live in north american and be able to get any website, I seldom visit those political website like FLG (FaLunGong) or anti-China-gov ones cause the articles/post on those websites are really silly, insane and absurdity.


- Not being able to go to a site that I just went to the other day.

I never have this problem before, maybe sth wrong with your DNS setting.


- The phone lines have many problems (for those with dial up).

Are u living in small town or countryside in China? As I know, most people living in cities of China use DSL or Cable to access internet.


- Slow internet in the evening cause everyone that got off work is trying surf the web.

Again, all ISP in China are now only focusing on broadband internet so I guees no one cares about the dial-up user anymore

Really? I never saw anyone still using dial-up in Canada.

Just FYI

1 - if you just for ENJOY, there are absolutly adequate sites for your entertainment in china, including some porn sites. of course, you cannt get those overthrow-Communist Party things without special technique.

2 - (ditto)

3 - only thing i can tell you is we have broadband almost everywhere, office, home, hotel, school, even a few coffee bars, some of them base on wireless technique. i wonder if there are still some people use dial-up way to get onto web nowadays. just from curiosity, i tried once by myself to dial up onto internet, i hardly could get even one full page, too many flash ad., pictures, audio, vedio information on those pages.
of course, if you want to discuss the reliability of the phone line in china, i'm not professional to reply, but i can talk to my girl friend by line 3 hours without any problem.

4 - for the speed, please take a look of the posted picture, the maximum i've ever got, so i copied the screen down. notice the figure

yeah, just like you do not threat to kill g.w.bush or to hijake an aircraft, you will be certainly safe.

That's right, as along as you are not a threat to China and the CCP you won't get thrown to jail. Just like in US as long as you are not a threat to the US national security you won't have CIA and FBI come knocking down your door with MP5s.

G.W.Bush's life = US national security ?
threatening to g.w.bush's life breaks US federal law, and threatening to CCP's authority breaks China's current law.
people shoule comply with the law, that's the damned point!
(the law is reasonable or not , this is another question)

That's not true, a threat to the regime of American government also counts as a threat to national security.

Not a reply to anyone in particular; just found an interesting article. Thought ya'll would like to read it.


N.C. outfit pierces China's firewalls
Xia's North Carolina-based company, Dynamic Internet Technology, disguises Web sites so they can slip past China's firewall filters. It allows Internet users in China to browse otherwise blocked pages involving such taboo topics as human rights, banned religious groups and peasant uprisings.

Trying to outwit China's cybercops is a cat-and-mouse game, not without risks.

Xia is reluctant to have his photograph taken. He agreed to be interviewed on the condition that the city where he lives and works not be disclosed. He met with a reporter in a quiet corner of a Triangle Starbucks.

Though they keep a low profile, Xia and like-minded people who have been dubbed "hacktivists" have recently been thrust into the international limelight.

It is interesting to me to see the differences in attitude toward groups like Falun Gong. And, while I'm certain that China is a much better place than many westerners realize, perhaps it would behoove some of our Chinese friends to circumvent the censors from time to time and see what others have to say (just like all those of us who, for whatever morbid reason, can't stop reading posts from Souljah and Syrian Sistah).

Enjoy

I love everyones little jabs at Souljah...

Chinas gov't will realize one day that it cannot spoon-feed billions of people. Eventually, human beings will find their way to truth, or at least the ones who want to know it. The fact that we have a few Chinease katz posting on ATS is uplifting to me.

If they can read the crap we post here, then how censored is the world to them?

That is Lying.


Today, we gather to express our outrage at the Sujiatun prison camp, so bravely exposed by the Japanese reporter, "Mr. R." The existence of this camp shocks us all, but it should surprise no one.
