Just want to tell you that you've been providing a great service recently; things seem to have stabilised in the last few weeks after the problems of two or three months ago.
Thanks for keeping on top of things so that, when the powers that be close one door, you open at least two others.
As a mac/windows/android user and I must admit that the vpn works pretty well.
Currently I am in Mainland China and the conection seldom stops. Besides, the speed of the connections are rather fast reaching at least 3mb (sorry, my connection is only 3mb so I can’t test more!)
This VPN has its own Windows software that automaticaly connects you to the fastest connection. The software is both easy to use and configure: you have to type your username and password and then it does everything automaticaly.
Android works pretty well with Samsung Galaxy SIII but I had some problems with mainland-bought phones. They strangely don’t support Cisco IPSec.
To configure every device you have a webpage with all the information that you have to type and with pictures that shows you how to do it.
In Mainland China you can buy this VPN through Taobao which is quite convenient if you have a bank account in China. Besides the price got down last month. Now it’s 39 yuan for the 60gb plan.
They send you an email to do the payment so you don’t have to bother too much to renew the plan.
About the support they are (in fact the guy who answer my questions sings with the same name) amazing: they answer ASAP and with an adequate answer!
The location of the servers vary with the protocol you are going to connect (PPTP, L2TP or CiscoIPSec). They have 2 main locations: Japan and USA and a secondary (which is the location that I use the most, specially to watch cantonese soap operas): Hong Kong.
Said so, this VPN has 2 weak points:
-It does not work very good in Mac (10.7) with the system configuration or freeVPN: it asks to authentificate and when you type the user and password suddenly stops and you have to restart the connection all over again. Said this, it works amazingly well with Shadowshoks (in Mac)
-The plan has a data limit and a p2p limitation (they don’t allow you to use p2p connections). For some people that 2 points could be quite important. For me, that I use the connection for work and personal things, these limitations are not important.
Simple setup, fast connection and great value for money. Most importantly, it works in China.
I have been in China for the past 6 months. And I have tried other VPN providers including StrongVPN and HideMyAss. When China started cracking down on OpenVPN, Breakwall was the only VPN provider that was active in resolving the issues and providing alternatives to restore access for us. They may be small but they are proactive on reaching out to their users. Unlike larger VPN providers who require a support ticket and days of waiting, Breakwall emails me when there are problems and responds quickly. I dont know how they are outside of China, but I can say that if you are an expat living in China, Breakwall is the service you need.
BreakWall is great when you’re living in a VPN hostile country like China as they always manage to get around attempts to block the service – quickly, too! Their service is also good value for money. Highly recommended!!
Great choice for VPN in China. Service is amazing. When I’ve encountered problems, provider has helped me every step of the way until I am back up and running smoothly. Thanks once again!
Breakwall service is really great! Ive only been using it for a day now and the setup was easy. The most awesome and quality customer support from them. Highly recommend…try it and see for yourself! No scam or gimmick. They offer great service all around and im a happy customer.
Really THE BEST service.
Simple setup instructions, easy way to Beat the Wall.
Works like a charm.
Thank you very much!
I’ve used Breakwall VPN twice now which has proven necessary when surfing the net in China. No complaints, the technical support is quick, efficient, and helpful. So many options when it comes to servers in different countries, methods, etc. Speed is always very quick. I highly recommend them and will continue using them for my VPN needs.
Price and speed are excellent.
Except for a couple of days ago I was a bit confused to register again when there was a problem with the provider without notice.
Anyway good VPN in China.
