Express VPN is no longer working with Amazon prime video. Any recommended vpn for amazon prime?
I'm M1 fibre user, can watch amazon prime video without vpn. Amazon prime have so limited videos, I unsubscribed the trial member under 1hr of usage..

vpn sold on carousel

i note a number of vpn sold at cheap prices for lifetime subscription or yearly subscription but at cheaper prices - are those legit or simply a scam? or like cars, parallel imports?

I have subscribed to PureVPN and is supposed to be lifetime subscription. No issues with being able to log in so far, just that it's quite slow when connected to US. May be too slow to stream anything to be honest. Haha. Not sure if it's actually going to be lifetime, but I just gave it a try. Even if it lasts for 2 years, I believe I still get another 6 months free, based on prevailing yearly subscription fee. Also, I am not sure how long will each VPN provider last.

Recently subscribed to Express VPN. There are 2 Singapore servers and couldn't connect to both via router but no problem with Windows client and android app. Anybody has this problem?

You should never jump into conclusion if you read here. Most VPN have some issue. Why pay 1 yr subscription. Most VPN can pay 1 month to try and has 7 days money back warranty. I have tried 3 different VPN and all got issue. I got money back.

A lot of the reviews you read online are paid. A lot of VPN are also overloaded.

I followed this
https://restoreprivacy.com/best-vpns/

Subscribed to VPN.AC. The bandwidth is transparent and can be seen on the webpage. Singapore's server is only 1-5% full.
Allow up to 6 connection and has IOS, Android, Imac and Windows app.

It's said to work in China and has good speed so I tried it as I need one that works well in both China and SG.
Not that exp too.
I used to use ExpressVPN and I feel VPN.AC is faster and more responsive, for less price.

NordVPN is very slow and super not reliable.

In SG, my speed using Openvpn connection on VPN.AC is quite okay, L2TP/IPSEC even faster. Ping is few less than 5ms.

Tried vpn ac with their trial, really not bad. Will be subscribing to a full year service. They also allow p2p and has many ways to encrypt in case one fail.
I don't any lag at all for surfing.

They keep log for one day only. By the time any people ask them for it, they delete liao. They are based in Romania with little alliance with spy countries. They also has an option for an overkill of 256bit encryption to make cracking super difficult.

Also has double hop encryption.

I used teamviewer to try my pc located in a kampung farmland in China, looks okay too.

Don't know how to use on android box and open up Hk channels

VPN to see china shows like youku, pptv....

Hi guys...

Other than Flyvpn, is there any other vpn that provides china ip addresses to access China streaming sites?

How does hidemyass fare in the streaming of video of china servers?

What's everyones VPN speed connected to USA? I have tried several big VPN companies and they are well under 30Mbps. I'm connected via singtel gigabit plan and on local servers without vpn i get around 500Mbps wired. It is a low for gigabit but fixing it soon.

Connected to Los Angeles, USA (average of three speed tests, wired ethernet, 256bit encryption, VPN through respective apps on Nvidia Shield)
ExpressVPN: 17Mbps
IPvanish: 10Mbps
VyprVPN: 15Mbps

Although expressvpn is the fastest i find VyprVPN to be the most stable. All three can access HBOnow, Hulu & Netflix. However it takes a long while to buffer up to 1080p/4k quality.

Just wondering what speeds everyone else is getting, particularly VPNac, Mullard and Torguard. Using VPN more for relocating geolocation rather than security.

You can still watch USA Netflix? Earlier Netflix has blocked all VPN.

ExpressVPN is a bit finicky, sometimes can sometimes cannot depending on what server you assigned to.

IPvanish using los angeles server a58 i can access netflix no issue also.

VyperVPN any server is fine, just use their chameleon encryption.
