While there are prepaid eSIM data packages for China, that doesn't mean an eSIM can get around the Great Firewall of China (which is how the People's Republic of China regulates domestic internet usage).
What is the Great Firewall of China?
The Great Firewall of China is a combination of tools, services, and rules enforced by the People's Republic of China government in order to block some internet content within China.
What content is blocked?
The firewall sometimes blocks entire websites, but may also just block or censor certain parts of a website.
Blocked sites in China include popular news sites (BBC, Reuters, The New York Times, The Washington Post), social media sites (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), conversation platforms (Discord, Reddit), and video content platforms (Netflix, YouTube).
How people bypass the Great Firewall
When users want to bypass the Great Firewall of China to access restricted content, they will often use a VPN, which stands for Virtual Private Network. Using a VPN creates an encrypted tunnel that prevents the government from seeing where the traffic is going. However, the Chinese government knows how to search for VPN access points and block them, so it's not foolproof.
Can my China eSIM get around the Great Firewall?
No, your China eSIM cannot get around the Great Firewall and display content that would otherwise be blocked or restricted. The aloSIM team is not able to determine which websites are prohibited by the Great Firewall of China, or unblock those sites if they are not appearing correctly on your device while using a China eSIM.
