Report: Dropbox unblocked in China According to Tech in Asia, cloud syncing service Dropbox is now unblocked in China after having been trapped behind the Great Firewall since 2010.
Besides the standard personal cloud syncing, the report confirms that publicly sharing files is also available.

Despite the site being back, it is doubtful that many in China will use it given the slow speeds to overseas servers and the general disinterest in the service compared to local offerings.

Services such as those from Tencent and Baidu, offer higher speeds and more space, some as high as 1TB compared to Dropbox's 2GB for free.

I used dropbox for the first time on my 2 month trip to mainland china last december and january. I used dropbox's camera sync and uploaded nearly 2000 pictures. never had a problem.

Also, 2 GB of free space must be an error (unless each country has its own cap) because im using 95% of the 5GB capacity and never paid a dollar
