The Problem with VPNs

Because of China’s strict regulations and censorship, many internet users opt to use virtual private networks (VPNs), which allow computers to connect with private web servers on other computers to effectively bypass controls and use the public internet freely.

VPNs use encryption alongside a number of other security protocols to prevent usage being visible, however China’s Communist Party (CCP) is constantly blocking these VPNs, especially those that connect with servers in Hong Kong, Bangkok and the USA.

This crackdown means VPNs are often taken offline and those that avoid being shut down by officials often suffer routine downtime and extremely slow speeds.

This is not helped by the fact that China has notoriously slow internet. At the moment, China’s internet penetration rate is only 48%, something officials are hoping to almost double by 2020, specifically in rural towns and cities.
