Zoom’s users are diverted to local providers due to the blockage
Posted On September 20, 2019
One of the leading video conferencing service provider Zoom has recently become inaccessible, including relevant websites, meetings and webinars. Amid the escalating tensions of the trade and technology war between China and the US, local government has implemented an even more stringent “cyber block” policy against overseas tech enterprises which act against authorities’ will to locate their servers in mainland China, presenting them an easy opportunity to perform any possible censorship. The associated market growth is outpacing expectation, reaching RMB3.1 billion in 2018 at an amazing rate of 36.2% year on year.
