    听说这个系统可以监测上个人上网信息。

    意思就是,即使你用公共的wifi,如果在网上做了什么“坏事”,那么要找你的人就一定能找到你。

    是所有的咖啡馆,更准确的说,是所有提供wifi的地方,包括图书馆...

    也就是说:他们要来监视我们,还要逼我们花钱请他们来监视我们

    @Dando

    hmm...not sure what do you mean. Well, the government forced all the cafes or any place where provide wifi service to install this spy software. The thing more ridiculous is that owners of these places have to pay 20,000 RMB to buy this software. Otherwise, their wifi services need to be shut down

    I know, Zoe. There was an English post on this topic yesterday.

    It's extortion.

    Moreover, it's malicious crippleware that will make your computer less secure, just like that Green Dam bullshit from a few years back.

    My tablet computer has a CDMA modem. Supposedly, I can purchase something like a mobile phone SIM card and access the Internet via cellular phone signals. But I think only China Unicom and China Mobile offer this service, so meh!

    ...

    Hahahahahaha ... is this not similar to the Green Damn saga last year, or the year before?

    "I don't believe there would be no wifi at cafes like starbucks though.."

    Oh, there will be. You'll still be able to get it at McDonalds too, as well as any other restaurant or cafe that has enough money to pay for the software.

    The little coffee shops and bars are the ones who will get screwed, as they barely make enough to cover rent, more often than not.

    Fuck the 共产党!  They will get whats coming to them soon enough.  HAHA their fear is evident in their actions to corner any possible dissidence.  What a bunch of scared pussies.  What they should do is welcome criticism and listen to the people like their original creed called for.  It is after all the China Communist Party for crying out loud!

    It's unenforceable.

    The cafes can just keep their own encrypted WiFi ostensibly for use only by the management, but surreptitiously share the passphrase with paying customers. How are the police going to distinguish between the WiFi routers of cafes and the WiFi routers of private citizens?

    I think bar owners are only turning off their WiFi right now as a form of protest.

    This aggression will not stand, man.

    My modem is built-in. No USB device needed.

    I don't often have problems with signal in most neighborhoods in Beijing. I'm more concerned that since it's only offered by China Unicom/China Mobile, it'll suck ass and be prohibitively expensive.

    Does anyone have any experience with mobile broadband in Beijing?
