Internet users must now provide their real names to service providers, and ISPs are required to delete forbidden posts and report such activities to authorities. In other words, the so-called “Great Firewall of China” has been further fortified. “This is just another indication that they really want to control what information gets to their citizens,” said Rob Enderle, principal analyst at the Enderle Group. “It means that all communication going in and out of China are going to be more closely monitored.”
