I have been using this ShadowsocksR(SSR) provider (wannaflix.com) for past few months. So far not blocked, able to torrent and Netflix at great speed and low latency.

PM me if you are interested to subscribe with further discount.

This wannafix is also recommended by the above author. He has a coupon code TIPS30 for one time 30% discount.

He has another article on setting up a SSR server on a VPS.

https://www.tipsforchina.com/mobile/...-easy-way.html

He recommends Express VPN, VPN.ac and Nord but mentioned that Nord has lower server performance than the other two. Then he also say SSR is a good alternative for China even though it offer less security and privacy protection than traditional VPN.

I think SSR providers are more useful in China to bypass the Great FireWall (GFW) but you do not really need it in Singapore because traditional VPNs are good enough in Singapore.

Just subscribed to NordVPN. I have an issue. One of Shopping site in Spain has geo blocking feature. When I enabled NordVPN on my iPhone , I was able to bypass the geo block feature. However when I enabled NordVPN on my PC, it is unable to overcome the geo block. I deleted all the cookies and the geo block persist.

Anyone can advise?
you pay top dollars to a VPN service provider like NordVPN even tho they have crappy speed and somemore come here to ask us for answers regarding their software issues. their CSO sibei good life..

So you took the three year US$2.99 per month offer. Still you are a paying customer and deserve the customer support.

Nord is not famous for speed based on various reviews but it is still consistently recommended as one of the top VPN vendors which works for many use cases. You can try their customer support and tell us your experiences to see if the customer support is good or not.

Ref: some rankings for reference

https://www.techradar.com/sg/vpn/best-vpn

https://www.vpnmentor.com/blog/best-vpn-awards/

https://thebestvpn.com/

You can see that Nord is considered one of the Best “All-Round” VPN and much cheaper than Express VPN.

ssr users getting lesser now. mainly ss and v2ray
it's a lot more than bypassing. can block ads too.
main pros was speed and auto routing
or even connecting multi US servers concurrently while watching US netflix if u wish

if that angmo can write chinese. maybe he would finds... providers like d|erc|oud or iplc better.

Thanks for the info. Looks like you are one of the few users who have good first hand experiences with the SS providers.

Looks like the author of the following article still keeps updating his notes on SS providers.

Your understanding should be roughly correct for VIP4 plan, it costs RMB360 or S$72 for six months and you get 4.7TB bandwidth one shot, not per month.

The issue seems that it is not really open to the public for subscription.

套餐情况:

VIP3,季付120元,总1.2T流量;年付400元,总4.7T流量(每月400G) 节点40左右。
VIP4/5,半年付360元,流量4.7T;年付600元,流量9.4T(每月800G) 包括深港集群 节点100+。
需要注意的:

新用户无法直接购买VIP5,需使用VIP4半年,系统自动审核通过后免费升级;
套餐是直接给的总流量,比如VIP3季付,是一次给你三个月一共1200G的流量;

限制4个连接数,支持443端口,目前仅支持SSR,暂不支持 Surge(测试中),CN2 线路几乎全线支持 Netflix ,新增集群,新增美国日本原生节点;

尚未开放购买,每月群里不定期开放 2-3 次,有风控;可多水群

I just subscribed to Surfshark after doing some intensive research. Able to netflix and climb bukit Timah. The official website is now running a sale at USD 1.99 per month. Don't know the sale will last for how long.

Pm me to know how to get further discounts. I managed to subscribed at USD 1.20 per month.

Are there any VPN that allows me to bypass Moviesanywhere account creation?

Want to create an account to add a digital movie code after buying a bluray disc that comes with free digital movie. However, moviesanywhere seem to be really good at detecting VPN. They only allow people in USA to create an account.

There isn’t really any way around it unless you are physically in the US.

I’ve tried.

Only way is to get someone you know in the USA to register an account for you.
