Skype (and VOiP) now illegal in China! We can help!

In their latest move, Chinese authorities had banned all (VOiP) internet telephony to be used in China territory. This means that China are even more closed to the outside world than before. Because sites like Facebook and Twitter are no longer available (without use of VPN or proxy) for Chinese users. If you are affected by this new law please read more and find out what you can do.What exactly this new law means you can find out here : article for The Telegraph ” China makes Skype illegal“. The most important facts are:

  • all internet phone calls were to be banned apart from those made over two state-owned networks, China Unicom and China Telecom.
  • Wang Chen, the deputy head of the Chinese Propaganda department, said: “By November … 350 million pieces of harmful information, including text, pictures and videos, had been deleted [from the Chinese internet].”
  • Skype said: “Users in China currently can access Skype via Tom Online, our partner.”
  • The service [] has been widely criticised for monitoring messages on the network, especially those which mention “sensitive” subjects such as Falun Gong, the banned spiritual movement, and Tibet.
  • According to the new regulations, phone calls from computers to land lines on Skype will be banned, but it may still be legal [of course if you do not mind that someone else is listeningto make calls from computers to other computers.
