The Great Firewall Just Banned VPNs

It seems that China is stepping up their game and fortifying the "Great Firewall" with a declaration of more pointed crackdowns on VPN providers. China is big on their "Internet Sovereignty" and they want to further tighten things up with Trump now sitting in the Oval Office. It's unclear as to how these new rules will be implemented and enforced, but it's not a good time to try and watch Netflix in China.

A statement published on the website of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology on Sunday said regulators will spend the next year “cleaning up” the Internet by taking aim at companies that provide virtual private networks, or VPNs, that allow people to access blocked sites, including the likes of Twitter and Facebook.
