A one-day Internet strike is being organised by a Chinese university student to protest at Net rates, a human rights group reported Thursday.

Huang Zhenquiang, an economics student at Nanjing University, is claiming Internet charges are too high for ordinary people. He says it costs about $30 to $40 for 20 hours of Net use. This represents one-fourth of the average monthly salary for a chinese citizen.

Huang is urging Internet users in China to boycott the Net for one day from December 31 to January 1 and every Sunday after until costs are lowered.

A similar protest took place in Germany in November with limited success. ISPs in Germany reported a drop of about 20 percent in connections on the day of the boycott.
