heard a bad news yesterday: from now on, in many cities in China on the bus, you may be hard to rub free WiFi. The largest bus operator WiFi 16WiFi announced: in Guangzhou, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Foshan, Fuzhou, Tianjin, Hangzhou, Haikou, Shaoxing Changsha, Kaifeng, temporarily shut down the WiFi service, only Beijing and Kunming as a model city "".
