Jan 2012 – I've finally updated most of the links on the site, and as of Jan 2012, all the VPNs featured on my site are working. If you prefer to use a proxy, SecuriTales (https://securitales.com/secure) is a great solution. Click HERE to read more about SecuriTales proxy service.
I use 12VPN and despite having tried several other companies over the years, I will continue to use their service. However, in light of keeping up with what exactly is the best VPN in China, and keeping things updated here at Unblock Facebook In China .info, I tried StrongVPN out for a month. Here's my comparison of the two.
***StrongVPNs main domain is currently blocked in China, so the links you find here won't for if you have a Chinese IP. 12VPN has a mirror site that works, so links here will take you to their 'secret' domain.
PureVPN also has custom VPN options for users in China, including iPhone/Android owers
BTW, if you sign up through my site here, and use the code "promo7286", you get 10% off, which makes 12VPN super cheap.

StrongVPN is a great company. Whatever your VPN needs are, they have them. You can rely on them for Twitter updates, blog updates, and a reliable VPN to get done what you need to get done, when you need it done. They've got servers all over the world, thousands of IP addresses to choose from, and well, the support and service that comes with such a popular company.
12VPN may be a smaller and younger company, but they've got a great support team (even though it's not live support. If you run into any problems with your VPN, they are always happy to help. Though at first glance it may seem like they have fewer options available, they do offer VPN servies for a range of devices – basically everything you could every need. There is only one price plan available, but it includes about 20 server locations that you can switch between freely, at no extra cost (StrongVPN charges you).
