Hi,
Just posted back from China after 5yrs.
Started with StrongVPN initially, but really cannot make it in China.

Switched to Astrill and had been with them for last 4years plus.
I had my Asus RT AC68U flashed with Merlin so that my family members are unable to use.
Personally, I do switch the server at least one a month and we have no problem assessing FB, WA, Google, Netflix, Toggle (Sg server), etc...

We find that having a VPN router is fasting than using the Astrill APP.

Hope it helps.
Astrill is always among the top VPNs for bypassing China GFW but it may be a bit pricey for that purpose, just like Express VPN. I believe it was the most popular one before 2018.

VPN.ac and Nord may be cheaper alternative for bypassing China GFW.

There are also reports that Astrill may not work in sensitive times.

Ref: this guy has real first hand experiences and speed test data of quite some VPNs for bypassing China GFW. He did not recommend Astrill.

Of course SSR seems to be the popular choice now.
