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:If you earned a Master's Degree in English Literature or a related subject, you can teach English legally in China even if you don't hold a passport from the usually accepted list of countries. The visa requirements clearly specifies this “loophole”.Nonetheless, I think this requirement is only for teaching English. If you are a licensed teacher of another discipline, such as Math or Physics, you don't need to be a native speaker, although most schools would rather hire a teacher from a country where English is the native language.Right now China’s borders are closed (does anyone have new information?), at least that’s what everyone is saying. China is probably only going to reopen the borders again once most of the population is vaccinated, and that might take a while. -- samvelasco87
