Hi guys,

I am a total noob. I want to get a vpn so I can stream Netflix USA, any good ones to recommend? Thanks!!!
So far I tried Norsvpn and Astrill.
Astrill has best performance for Netflix streaming but cost more than other VPN providers.

Hey guys, anyone tried Ivacy before? Really interested because of their prices but it kinda seems too good to be true as they're like offering 5 year lock in prices for 1.34 a month now.

Yeah Astrill is superb but expensive.

I'm still looking for other users to share subscription cost. The basic plan allows 5 concurrent users.

Yup I got it working, paid using existing credits in my Alipay account.
Is there a way to pay directly with QQ or Wechat wallet instead of buying from Taobao? Cuz the promotion in the QQ website is much better!

mmh.. issit? i always thought the ones on taobao are not bad.. i think due to xchange rate.. lol
anyway, directly form the qq music website, if u choose to 开通 .. u can pay via qq wallet or wechat.. but i think only if ur wechat wallet is linked to china bank account. qq wallet can also topup from taobao.. i used to do that.. but in the end, i feel direct payment on taobao convenient lol.

anyway, great that alls well now.

To be fair though those VPNs I see recommended a lot here:

bestvpn.co

And they're in general good VPNs. Nord, Express, PIA are all on my list personally.

PIA can hit 3-400Mbps when running on desktop or mobile apps client.. if running on my ac-rt86u router can hit around 200+Mbps.. on wireless ac 5ghz band.
