They have had a whole year 50% discount using promo code, so it is disappointing.

Not too bad, $100 for 2 years including the ProAddon, I think it's the same deal like last year?But this year it seems 24 hours only, I think last time they run it through whole weekend until Monday.
oric1 and hnzfaz like this.

Same price as in 2014 when I bought it. Just renewed for another 2 years for S$151.

Not comparable really. You can't really compare the VPN providers offering lifetime service with Astrill, which apart from Black Friday and some anniversaries doesn't go on sale.

I have been using vpn.ac for the past month and I must say they are a very good mid-priced VPN provider. 6 connections, good security options. VPNREV discount code makes it $40 per annum. I especially like their SecureProxy addons for Opera, Firefox, Chrome. What is nice about them compared to Astrill for example, is that they can work independently. That means you can have Opera set to US, Firefox to UK etc. I like the data centers they are using, they seem to be less "blocked" in day to day life. They have also Socks5 proxy for torrenting if someone cares. Speeds are great both for VPN and SecureProxy. Their Mac app is not super polished like Astrill, but it does its job. All their servers default to US Netflix which works.

Edit: Cyber16 coupon makes it $32 for Black Friday (recurring discount).

No idea sorry, they don't have servers in China if this is what you are asking. Their full list of servers is here.

Sexpensive man. I paid USD80 two years back and got the pro addon AND the free router also.

singapore server also cannot, it's not so much of the location apparently... i tried using AWS EC2 to VPN, last year can, this year cannot

apparently they use deep packeting <something, i forgot the word> like they look into the content of the packet, got some people try to obfuscate... too tedious don't wanna try... didn't stay long enough

your expedrience?
