What router do you use? It may be as simple as clicking a few menus.
one of the router provided by Singtel, "Gigabit router AC plus".

Hi guys, I'm new to VPNs & would like to seek some advises from u all regarding this.

I will be attached to china for 2 months, and will be buying a china sim card over there. Did some research that the great firewall of china is blocking all non-Chinese social media platform(Facebook, whatsapp, youtube, gmails,..). Even some VPN have been blocked too.

Therefore I like to check anyone has experience working and using a VPN in China?
as I would to subscribe an VPN service which I can use over there. (maybe will keep using, as I just recently discover the benefits of VPN).

Mainly usage will be streaming Video(YouTube) and to use our common social media platform(Above), will be using it on laptops & mobile phones.
You may be asking in the wrong forum section.
This is mostly on VPN for local usage.

Go to Lifestyle » Travel and Accommodation » China

Read topics > China Facebook and Google and other topics if available and related to your needs.

Or create & post to seek advice from those who are familiar with China.
And specify your usage pattern &or budget, etc; for better suggestions.

If you are linux savvy, you can try out shadowsocks an easy to set up VPN on linux machine

I've been on Astrill for a number of years but since it was expiring I took the opportunity to try alternatives, primarily because P2P speeds are poor and I'm unable to connect to Discord using openVPN mode (maybe I'm doing something wrong).

So far, I've tried ExpressVPN, but my main problem with it is that I get terrible latency when raiding in WOW; and VyprVPN which also has bad latency when playing WoW.

I've been reading various review sites, but many seem to just be paid advertisements. Does anyone have a similar usage profile and have a VPN to recommend, or advice in fixing the problems I'm encountering with the VPNs I've tried so far?

Been using Torguard since July last year for p2p & bypassing geo restrictions.

I may renew sub for another year or switch to PIA.

Some info to share here (Coupon codes or URL are in brackets below):

1) NordVPN = USD48/year (70off)

2) Private Internet Access = USD$38.95/year

(http://www.vpnfan.com/blog/private-i...iscount-couon/
USD34.95 (http://ayecoupons.com/private-intern...es/#coupon2250)
https://www.privateinternetaccess.co...mahem-1yr-deal

3) TorGuard = USD29.99/year (TGLifetime50)

Wired, SingTel (ST) 300 Mbps
Test Server = ST in SG
VPN Servers/Hosts = SG



For USD29.99/yr with the coupon code, it's really VFM IMO.

So far for me, the only major thing is I am not able to install it on the ST AC Plus router.

Speed to SG hosts seems good & I am also considering PIA atm.

Do you get disconnected often with PIA?

Cheapest 1 year plan for PIA I managed to find:
USD34.95

You can try NordVPN.

There are Anti-DDoS servers that you can choose to connect to.
