Iran blocking Chinese websites

Published by at 2:59 am under Censorship

The Chinese national soccer team is in Tehran to play a friendly game against the local boys.  However, all is not well.

During their downtime, the Chinese team likes to get online to see what is happening back home.  The hotel has wireless broadband in the rooms but it costs USD $5 per hour to surf.  The business center in the lobby also has access but that costs USD $4 per hour.

The team members decide to pay the price and use their laptops in the room only to discover that they can’t access Chinese websites such as Sina, Sohu and Netease.  They inquire and find out sure enough, Iranian authorities have them blocked.
