The Internet revolution in China was started in 1987 with the setting up of the 'China academic network' (CANET). Initially being used for academic purposes, the Internet in China was commercialised with the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications (MPT) setting up the 'ChinaNET(C)' in May 1995. China witnessed a rapid growth in Internet users since then, which totalled 79.5 million users by the end of 2003. However, with many surfers getting access to information that was previously censored by the government, the Chinese government started tightening its regulations, specifically on the kind of content that was available on-line. This resulted in the blocking of several pernicious and anti-governmental websites.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the effect of increasing penetration of the Internet in China and the growing government regulations to curb its misuse.

Keywords : China, Internet, Network, China academic network (CANET), Ministry of Post and Telecommunications (MPT), Golden projects, Internet users, Technology Management Case Study, Blocked sites in China, Internet cafe, Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), On-line trading, On-line games, Regulations, World Trade Organisation (WTO), Culture
