The Chinese government began blocking VyprVPN connections at 7am CST on June 1st. This blocking attempt was likely due to the impending anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 on June 4th. As with previous blocking attempts, our engineers rapidly implemented procedures which have resolved these blocks and fully restored VPN service to our users in mainland China by 8:30am CST.
Because we own and operate our network, we are able to make swift adjustments to our servers and IPs when blocks like this occur. The connection activity chart below illustrates the impact of China’s latest attempts to block VyprVPN and our success in working around these efforts in an efficient manner.
