This will be a short post.
I woke up this morning and noticed my download speeds went from the usual speeds of 1.8 MB/s to a whopping 2.49 MB/s
This is a 700 KB/s increase.
When I lived in China, I remembered the highest download speeds I was ever able to get on average was 200-300 KB/s and still the internet fluctuated due to the great firewall of China (#GFWC). Even using a VPN (from Strong VPN) which cost $10/mo, assisted keeping the connection a little bit more stable. But the Chinese Government did an amazing job to always kill the connection every few hours.
I suppose this is one great things about living in US of A.
Due to the “freedom” and established laws (and order), we Americans (and most western countries) are not restricted to government firewalls, filters or monitors.
I once heard back in 2007 how the Chinese government has over 25,000+ employees working for that Great Firewall of China. Now that more Chinese users are getting online, I can only imagine this number of employees have not only doubled, but possibly tripled.
Although I will not get into how the US government spies on their own people for “homeland” security efforts. That post is for another day.
For now enjoy yourselves an amazing week!
And don’t forget what Miles Davis says;
