Carrying Out Internet Censorship in China
InterNet usage refers to internet access using computer networks, devices, and other online resources. Internet access is a tool for people and businesses to connect to the Internet with other computer devices, such as computers, mobile phones, and other portable devices; and also to access various services including the World Wide Web and email. While most individuals use their home computer to visit the Internet and send emails, many businesses use their business computer to access the Internet and perform other business functions, such as managing files, calendars, and schedules. The Internet is available anywhere there is a telephone connection available, making it one of the most widely used worldwide resources. In addition, when people purchase cell phones, or pay bills via credit cards, they often obtain Internet access through a wireless connection offered by the cellular phone carrier.
The most commonly accessed website in the United Kingdom, according to a recent study by the E-marketing Association, is Facebook. The second most frequently visited website is YouTube, which is also on the internet used by more than one in ten internet users. A major portion of the United Kingdom’s residents has at least one cell phone and most people access the Internet through their cell phone, either for shopping, entertainment, or the ability to stay in touch with family and friends.
The main article in this series will address the question, “Why is broadband internet subscriptions important to consumers?” Broadband internet connections are more reliable and faster than other forms of connections. Consumers can get more than one hundred percent of their desired bandwidth from a broadband internet provider. This is important because it gives a consumer the ability to download an unlimited amount of data and not be limited by a cap on how much that data can be downloaded. Additionally, the speed of a connection is a major factor in determining the efficiency of a website. The speed of a web index is one of the main reasons why people visit a particular website and how the visitor is perceived by the company and the product or service being offered.
In the main article I explained that “In China Internet users have access to torrents and peer to peer file sharing networks illegal.” This is true as most of the Chinese government has enacted strict laws against these types of activities. According to “Wikipedia” a peer to peer file sharing network is a web site that allows users to share files using a network of computers. This type of business is usually done through illegal means, but as I stated before, the Chinese government has implemented many online blacklists that block websites.
Another reason that the Chinese government has implemented many Internet censorship measures is because they fear the spread of “Western culture” into the country. China does not want its citizens to have access to pornography and the majority of the Chinese people do not like Chinese films and TV shows. According to the “main article” in this series, “There is no evidence that viewing porn stars on the Main Net increases Internet usage in China,” but the same can be said of watching TV shows with English subtitles. In the main article the writer does not offer any evidence that this is true and there are many articles in the Chinese language that describe exactly the opposite. It would seem to me that it is rather easy to conclude that the writer simply does not know his facts and is making up his own nonsense to justify the banning of the Chinese internet.
The writer’s main thesis is that the Chinese government and Internet companies should work together to develop a censorship free platform that will prevent the spread of “Western culture” throughout the country. In doing this the government and the large companies would gain control over the use of the MainNet and carna botnet will not be blocked. Internet censorship in China is already in place and works effectively. The time has come to take action and prevent the spread of carna botnet onto the Internet.
