According to many folks around China, the Chinese Wikipedia (zh.wikipedia.org) seems to be widely accessible in the last 24 hours. Previously, the English language and other Wikipedias were unblocked with still roughly 50% of folks not being able to access zh.wikipedia.org. (See chart)
Users of different ISP have just confirmed accessibility, including:
- Beijing China Netcom DSL
- Beijing China Unicom
- Shanghai China Telecom DSL
This is a pretty significant development, especially with Chinese Wikipedia on the cusp of reaching 100,000 articles. Let’s see if the access holds.
