SIM cards, VPNs, staying connected

SIM CARD
Hacker Campers will receive a 1GB 30day prepaid SIM card from Hong Kong China Unicom. It work has solid 3G data in Hong Kong and Shenzhen/Guandong Province in China. It should work with the vast majority of 3G phones.

It is a Hong Kong SIM card. Data is routed through Hong Kong and content is NOT censored, even in mainland China.

This card does not have voice or SMS capabilities.

VPN
We use 12vpn.com. That said, you could roll your own with the instructions at http://vpn.paxinstruments.com

VPN is useful if you need a YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter fix, but it doesn't solve the larger problem of the internet just sucking in China. It sucks in a vacuously amazing ways that you can not even imagine until you use it.
