Re: Facing extremely slow connection to Chinese websites

same here, I'm using 300mbps fibre connetion, cannot open taobao page, i mean i only can open taobao main page, when I search products then show me this: 

 

This site can’t be reached

store.taobao.com took too long to respond.

 

it's definitely not taobao's problem, because my friends can use taobao without any problem.

Re: Facing extremely slow connection to Chinese websites

so i am not the only one out there....it affects me because i am doing business on taobao. the experience is like using 56k modem, keeps connection time out.

 

i have to resort to VPN to route my packets to Hong Kong to get a better connection. In other words, I suspect Starhub is throttling the direct data to China big time

Hi Jenson

 

Have you restarted your modem/ONT and router separately to refresh network connection?

 

If this doesn’t help, please send me your full name, NRIC/FIN number, account details, contact number and email via Private Message and I'll be in touch.
