[quoted]Well for one I would be very interested to see some more data about site access times. [/quoted]
That is the main question of me as well. I just phoned one of my people in China, he confirmed that it is very slow when visiting foreign sites, but he can not offer any data on it. I can do some tracerts to main hosting companies in America & Europe to see the speed when I am in China.
I was in China half an year ago, at that time it was almost impossible for me to visit my own site which is hosted in the Netherlands.
For many of you who just want to know some stats of Internet in China, you should visit
That is the government who controls the whole Internet in China. You will find information such as domain registration, stats of Internet development in China, etc.
You can also find the connection speed from China to outside countries there.
If you understand Chinese, here is a nice flash, move your mouse to certain ISP, it will show the connection speed to outside world.
A JPG version is also avaiable with a little English translation on it.
I will stay in China for 3 weeks this time, I will inform your guys when I am in China.
