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: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
