Forums > Living in Kunming > Internet speed and reliability using VPN

Thanks for all the replies. She got the China Comm 200M and it is a major disappointment. It may be fast in China but it doesn't compare to my 60M speed back in the states when I access overseas websites. With or without ExpressVPN, she could only access some of her US college website links she needed so I'll be cancelling her summer courses.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Internet speed and reliability using VPN

My wife is visiting her family and was planning to take US college summer semester courses ONLINE. Her mother's 10M internet using ExpressVPN didn't work because it was too slow. She can get 100M (advertised) but can she rely on the internet being up and reasonable fast with VPN for the 3 months semester?

Forums > Living in Kunming > Getting internet without line connection

I will be staying in Kunming for about 5 to 7 weeks and I am looking to get wifi access for my laptop without getting a line connection.
Does anyone know about ChinaNet Wi-Fi Day/Week/Month Pass? Can you get reliable internet access for normal browser access? Any information would be appreciated.

I did not write that I was looking for free VPN. I was inquiring about VPN service with a free trial period.
Anyway thanks for the suggestions.

Forums > Living in Kunming > VPN Update

I've searched for VPN information considering the recent VPN crackdown I read but the last one was 3 months ago. I am coming to China and wanted to know what are the VPNs that are currently being used successfully. I have used ExpressVPN in the past. Is it still usable? Are there any others especially with a free trial so I can evaluate them? Thanks

Hi,

I usually take the bus to Jinghong leaving from the South Bus Station.
In JH, you can catch a bus to Huay Xai Laos the next morning. I am not sure if there is a sleeper going to HX. You can probably buy the next morning bus after you arrive in JH.
I usually stay at Manytrees International Youth Hostel several nights before I take the morning bus to Laos.

You should arrive in HX in time to cross the border into Thailand. You can sleep 1 night at one of the local GHs and catch the Green Bus to CM in the morning or catch a minivan the same day at about 6PM to CM.
Hope this helps.
