Q: China Telecom Internet

I have a 10 mbps crappy shitty DSL from the great wall company that always lags and down most of the time. I am looking to change and China Telecom is offering 100 mbps fiber optic ADSL.  Anyone of you guys using that ? is it any good ? I need it for pc / ps4 online gaming and movies streaming. If someone tried it and its not that good, can you recommend an alternative ?

100 mbps doesn't mean anything if your building only supports 10mbps! It all depends on your building's infrastructure.

100 mbps ? I'd be sceptical.

 

I upgraded a few months ago and nothing at all changed. In fact, it seemed to be slower if anything.

 

Asked a few Chinese friends and they all said the super fast claims are lies to get more money. I tend to believe them. I don't use China Telecom but still...

Our office in GZ has China telecom fiber optic. Speed test results regularly come out at 80+ Mbps.....though some days it's bloody slow! What they don't tell you is the bandwidth into a building of 48 floors with 4 apartments/small offices on each floor! Evening speeds are great, day time can be frustratingly slow.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
