Q: Need a good internet provider in Beijing?

I have a very slow internet connection at home. I obviously had to pay a year in advance and I am not even able to work from home because any program fails to open because they have timed out loading for like 5 min. So i bought a VPN and nothing really changed. I can only access local sites. Is this normal? Can you recommend me a good Internet provider in Beijing?

 

Thanx

As far as I know, there's only one internet provider. There's no shopping around in China...at least as long as the internet remains state-controlled. VPNs tend to slow down connections even more. What you have to do is select a faster broadband option. It'll cost you more but should make a difference.

Where do you connect your VPN to?

And which country do you need to connect to to work from home?

 

If working from home to a Chinese working place, then VPN will not help you.

If working from your Chinese home to a foreign working place, then try connect to a VPN in Hong Kong or the country your work place is in.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
