Wuhan - Post Report Question and Answers

Is high-speed home Internet access available? How long does it typically take to install it after arrival?

In the serviced apartments, wifi and wired internet are included. Have one or more VPNs installed before you arrive in China in order to access any Western social media. Downloading movies and TV from Netflix, Amazon, etc. at home works better than streaming because the internet isn't always that fast and the VPN will disconnect sometimes. The VPN does not seem to play well with local mobile phone networks so I only tend to use it at home. - Jul 2021

The internet is available, and it is generally fast enough for us to stream videos. That being said, we have to use a VPN to access many websites (any social media based in the US), and that does slow things down. - Jan 2020

We have excellent high-speed internet at home for 100 RMB (10 euros) a month. - Feb 2008
