Internet Anti-Jamming Technology Companies Reach Milestone Agreement

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Four world-leading companies in Internet anti-jamming technologies reached an agreement today that starts full-scale cooperation in their technology and business operations. The four companies are the World’s Gate, Inc., the Dynamic Internet Technology, Inc., the UltraReach Internet Corp, and the Garden Networks for Freedom of Information Inc.
Internet users in China are unable to access blocked overseas web sites without outside help from the free world. Several companies, including the above four, have successfully developed and implemented technologies (anti-jamming services, also known as anti-blockade services) to enable Chinese users to break through the blockade and access overseas web sites.
In recent years, hundreds of thousands of users have been visiting web sites outside China through services of these companies on a daily basis, and the accumulated number of visits has reached beyond one billion. The four companies that entered into this cooperative agreement have been providing services to many overseas web sites on many topics, such as news, education, entertainment, human rights, and politics. These companies act as a bridge between the Chinese Internet users -- thirsting for news from the outside world -- and the blocked overseas web sites.
“Funding of these anti-blockade tools and services, in addition to the income from various service contracts, comes from donations and in-kind contributions in different forms from people from all walks of life. Many talented people work for these companies as volunteers,” said Mr. Bill Xia, President of the Dynamic Internet Technology, Inc.
“Internet visits from China through the companies’ networks and services have been increasing dramatically. However, the Chinese Communist regime has been employing increasingly sophisticated technologies to filter, block, monitor, and mislead Internet users inside China. It has invested a huge amount of resources and manpower to update their technology of blocking and censoring the web sites,” said Mr. Jack He, President of Garden Networks for Freedom of Information Inc.
“We need to continue to enhance our network, so that more users can access overseas web sites without any restrictions and roadblocks, and this will eventually tear down the information censorship in totalitarian regimes like China. But our extremely limited funding and resources have restricted what we can actually accomplish,” continued Mr. He.
To reduce operational costs and better serve users, the companies decided to work together in several aspects of their anti-jamming services. In the agreement, The World’s Gate has been authorized to exclusively represent the other three companies when entering into agreements with client web sites for various anti-jamming services. New arrangements are being finalized among the companies for the human interest and human rights organizations to meet their special needs. At the same time, in order to utilize their limited resources more efficiently, they hope web sites that have been using the anti-jamming services for free can contribute to the cost.
“We are starting a massive upgrade of our technologies and networks,” said Alex Wang, Vice President of the World’s Gate, Inc. “For those overseas sites that use our services, please discuss with us about future plans of service. I do expect that this cooperation will significantly improve the user experience. We will continue our efforts until the information censorship inside China completely ceases.”
The companies’ technologies will help users not only in mainland China, but also other authoritarian regimes, including Belarus, Cuba, Ethiopia, Iran, Laos, North Korea, Tunisia, and Vietnam -- thanks to the borderless nature of Internet.
At the same time, these tools also effectively protect user privacy and online safety by providing a secure Internet access mechanism for the users.
