Q: Internet issues again?

So my vpn takes forever to actually log in and often requires multiple attempts, and steam and pc games are practically unusable now. Anyone else having issues? Is it China or my stupid internet provider?

My vpn stopped working very soon after someone asked the question about free vpns, and some idiot mentioned the vpn I use.

My internet has got really slow, I recently 'upgraded' to a higher speed connection but it made no difference.

 

My VPN is ok sometimes, usually I have to change servers a lot though but I don't think it's VPN problem, I think it's that the internet has slowed down a lot.

A friend of mine called her VPN operator for similar issues. China is cracking down on VPN access in the run up to Spring Festival.

Seems there is a crackdown on, started a few days ago. One of my VPN 's gave me a warning. The other one which I use for work/Dropbox access has been having problems last few days as well. Bloody frustrating!

Yes it is here again. Can very slowly connect to news sites, but many game servers are almost inaccessible, need forever try and try again. Since xmass I feel is going down a lot

I agree that the internet has taken a turn for the worse during the past 2 weeks. All the sites that I could visit before are now not loading and if you are talking about foreign news sites, then just forget it.

Every time I use the internet I feel as if I have traveled back in time and am waiting for my 56k dial-up to load. Oh wait  Time travel is not allowed here...

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
