hey, which vpn would u guys recommend if you just want your torrenting to be private? maybe once in a while access US stuff... I also only have 100mbps speed so dont need those fancy ones i suppose...

someone recommended me https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/ but theyre not from singapore so not sure if it would work well here.
If you want privacy, you wouldn't want something from Singapore

I was on hma once like 1.5 years ago, but the speed was miserable compared to astrill. Not just bad, but really, really bad. Did they improve since? How is the speed compared to other services?

I started using PureVPN for 2 months. So far reasonably ok. Using it largely to unblock youtube, China video streaming and etc... US sites usually ok. China video streaming sites depend on the time of day... Generally ok with iPad & IOS. But have some problem at times with Android

For China streaming, weekday night time stream fast?

I've been going with PIA for a while now. Use it mainly to get around content restrictions in the US. Speeds are pretty good when connected to servers in Silicon Valley in the US, around 25 mbits/s. Enough to get a 1080p stream running without buffering. YMMV

hmm, yesterday i have a weird discovery.
I tried using my astrill stealthvpn on my china brand and brought tablet using windows 10 and the download for youku actually went up to 1-2 mBps, limited by the tablet n wifi connection. But it seems like it will go in a cycle with a 0 connection after 10mins before picking up again in 5 mins.
On my desktop, the most it was 300kBps using the same method but in windows 7.
On Win8.1 desktop, I was able to get 900kBps on China Server 2 via Astrill StealthVPN.

Hi bros,

I'm currently on 600mbps VQ plan(renewing to 1gbps this weekend). Currently on VQ's Freedom VPN and am quite happy with it. Using it mainly for geo-restricted content.

However, Freedom VPN is obviously not able to work on 3G/4G. As such, I wanna get a VPN so that I can stream netflix on the go.

At home, I usually also climb BT so getting a VPN is another plus. Will also be using the connection to stream netflix.

As such, can anyone recommend me on which VPN to use? The requirement are:
1. Decent speeds on BT
2. Stream 1080p on netflix with no or minimum buffer

edit: Oh right, I forgot 1 last requirement

3. Able to do both 1 & 2 at the same time

Thanks bros.

anyway, ec2 has always been good for some free hulu. i'm on the west coast and it streams 480p smoothly all the time. im running on less secured pptp though. but then again, can't really ask for much since the whole setup process takes less than 1min excluding the initialization of a node.

did the sg node really give out UK address? if that is the case, i can finally watch bbc on iplayer!
May be u can tell us a bit more about ec2. It is a free vpn?
