I live in China and have been using StrongVPN since I moved here in 2011.
Connecting to one of the StrongVPN servers allows me to use sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Blogger and Youtube (these sites seem to be blocked in China).
It allows me to use the internet as if I were connecting in the US. In fact, when I've used the internet here without connecting through StrongVPN, I've been unable to access other sites and parts of sites such as Wikipedia, perhaps due to blocking regulations.
Thanks to StrongVPN ... I'm able to use the internet securely and easily!
