Sorry, I intend to apply for one of these providers for VPN (first timer).

What country do we actually select to connect to? Singapore still? server-wise we can just let them detect the optimal one automatically right?

You need to be more specific on what you are using it for.

For gaming, for torrenting and more usually requires a different VPN. Such as a VPN meant for torrenting so they'll allow a high bandwidth for that purpose. Or for gaming, well, that one is questionable since some of our ISP can offer lower latency since u are not going through a lot more hops since you must add going through the VPN server as well.

For example, I was getting 72ms to Korea while those on WTFast VPN was getting 93ms to Korean server.

How did I connect to overseas servers at will and block the other game servers?
The Netgear XR500 with the DumaOS. Choose which server to block and which server u want to join. Then let the game's matchmaking put you into that server.
Best part is, no such thing as subscription fees.

I see, thanks. I wont be gaming or torrenting as much, it is more for streaming hd/uhd stuff on a tv box. so latency would not be as much of a problem i believe? generally would people still select singaporean server to connect for this purpose?

I'm on PIA configured to my router, means all devices including IoT gadgets which are connected via the router is covered... Netflix will detect and prevent the stream to start if I attempt the use the app directly on my phone...

but.... if I ask Google Assistant via the Google home device to play "whatever" show/movie on Netflix on my tv that has Chromecast, it will play and stream without the prompt about accessing via a proxy..

so if your main reason for getting a VPN service is.to bypass geological restrictions for Netflix. PIA is not a good choice..

Been using Pure VPN for quite a few years now. No complaints

Torrenting using Norway server is quite fast on specific torrenting configuration. Also I use it to browse dark net on highest security setting.

I'm trying out a Singapore based VPN called Ivacy. Surprisingly good with decent speeds for torrents/games. Average around 80mbps on us servers and am able to Netflix without any issues.

1 issue I'm facing now is....I can't seem to turn it off on Netflix. Keep seeing us content only.

I am looking at Ivacy now
https://www.ivacy.com/lifetime-package/

$1 /mth for 5 years
Cheaper than VyrVPN (MyRepublic Offer of $5/mth)


-Synchronicity-,
You sure you can access US based content ?
Is it configured at Router level ?

Very sure. Yes, it's configured at router level. You have to check with the support for Netflix though. The server which is used for Netflix isn't listed in their support.

I just finished the new season of supernatural. Watched it via my Samsung smart TV and also on the go on mobile.
