China's North-South Divide

The connection delays due to bandwidth for connections between the major Chinese ISPs CT (China Telecom) and CU (China Unicom) being restricted is sometimes called the "Chinese Internet North-South Divide".

This refers to the phenomenon of connections being delayed or difficult to establish even when accessing a Chinese Web server from within China.
