What We Use in China

Proxy Server and VPN Solution for Expats in China

Astrill VPN

We have stuggled with numerous proxy server and virtual private network (VPN) solutions since first arriving in China and have finally found a service that delivers what it promises:

Astrill happens to be one of the few services that we've tried that actually delivers what it promises: fast, reliable, and relatively inexpensive proxy server AND VPN services with POP mail access (most VPN services disable POP mail access to save bandwidth).

Subscriptions can be purchased on a monthly, quarterly, semiannual, and annual basis. Readers who access through Middle Kingdom Life will automatically receive a flat five (5) percent discount on all subscription packages.

If you don't need true VPN capability, then you can run the service as a proxy server through a TSR control panel with proxy servers located in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany, and France (all for one fee). You will not need to manually configure your browser: Astrill automates the process. This is the way to go if you're hitting the Great Firewall of China more often than you care to.
