Internet experts now suggest you are better off without Gmail or at least use other web email services. This is because China may now be fully blocking the Google-powered email platform and your emails to your Chinese or China-based contacts may no longer get through.
Starting June of 2014, the country has been cutting off traffic from the search giant and other websites that may trample the government.
Google confirmed that Gmail traffic in China is dipping.
Experts however say it is more of the country’s efforts to completely bring down Googles’s operation not just in China but worldwide.
Imagine if users cannot email contacts in that country using Gmail, they will be forced to use another service resulting in migration of email users from Google.
