Thanks - the acronym has been amended. It is rather confusing because their English name is still China Internet Network Information Center, despite being abbreviated to CNNIC.

OK, but when will we get true broadband? My little internet speed utility routinely tells me that I effectively have a dial-up connection, even though it's called ADSL.

Does the Great Firewall and Net Nanny really soak up that much bandwidth? Or what?
