China Bans All VPNs

China Bans All VPNs

But some foreign VPN service providers said their business was thriving after mainland rivals were shut down, and that they were confident they could work around new technical barriers.

As Nord notes, "millions of people in China - locals and tourists alike - use VPNs daily to access the global web, including such sites as Google, Twitter and Facebook or news websites like The New York Times that are blocked in China".

The carriers involved - China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom - are all state-owned and are the country's biggest operators.

It said at the time it would embark on a 14-month long campaign to "clean-up" China's internet services. But if it does, it'll be very interesting to see whether Chinese authorities are targeting individual users, or will also block businesses from accessing VPNs. "VPNs are incredibly important for companies trying to access global services outside of China", he said. Well then, we're sorry to do this, but here goes: the government in Beijing has told telecommunications providers to bar virtual private network (VPN) access by February 1, 2018.

It is also expected top seriously impact expats who rely on news sources and social media now blacklisted by the Chinese government. But it made it harder for the average person to access VPNs and had a "chilling effect" on those considering using them, the co-founder of online censorship monitor GreatFire, who uses the pseudonym Charlie Smith, said. "These measures are being rolled out non-stop now".

Ofcom Tries to Limit EE and Vodafone's 4G/5G Aspirations
We've designed this auction to ensure people and businesses continue to benefit from strong competition for mobile services. It said that in order to "safeguard competition", it will limit the amount BT-owned EE and Vodafone can win.

According to Bloomberg, Beijing has ordered state-owned all telecommunication companies to prevent users from using VPNs, networks used by most Chinese who want to avoid authorities from censoring the roaming web traffic overseas.

"How will we declare our love for China on Facebook without VPN?"

"But this would be a huge blow to the Chinese internet. and I don't really believe the government would want to harm the economy by shutting down VPNs entirely", he said.

Well known and highly secure VPN service NordVPN has just commented on the recent promise by the Chinese government to crackdown on VPNs.
