anybody looking at vpntraffic[dot]com?
If you are trying to view TVB programmes from various source, I have only found vpntraffic[dot]com works. StrongVPN doesn't work has tried recently. The X-Forwarded-For approach also doesn't work for PPS.TV anymore.

However vpntraffic is very affordable for your consideration, but I found it is rather slow if you are on M1 fibre. The latency is roughly 250ms and the bandwidth isn't fantastic either.

However, what I did is I tried routing via my EC2 VPN, as since below

And indeed I can get very good, ultra high resolution from youku.com only if you
route thru EC2@SG. The route seems so short for my EC2@SG is because my VPN starts from the EC2@SG instead of from my VPN, hence the route above is just the hop thru my PPTP tunnel. Below is the route from my EC2@SG to the VPN server in China.

I wouldn't be able to provide the route from the VPN server to the youku, but I think we can assume it's pretty fast.
