You can try for anonymous surfing. Their servers are very fast and optimized for Chinese connections.

Thanks Zozo,

But no dice, got the following error: “Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)”

Can I ask what general region are you in China (North, Central, South)? Reason for asking, is because it seems there are 3 Major routes out of China - Beijing, Shanghai & Hong Kong. I’ve noticed the restrictions on content routed through the Hong Kong connection is alot more relaxed than the one through Shanghai.
