Perhaps it was a temporary issue? US Netflix works for me using ExpressVPN MediaStreamer DNS.

Any code or discount for Astrill current subscribers?

My VPN is going to expire soon.

PS: Current plan allows to connect up to 5 devices concurrently. Anyone who wants to share PM me.

Unfortunately there is no discount code for Astrill.

Recently I was hunting around for another VPN to replace my Astrill (with them for 6 years) as it will be expiring this Dec.

Read reviews that ExpressVPN has one of the fastest download speed so I decided to give it a try. Since they doesn't provide free trial, I subscribed for a month.

Connected to these servers to do speed test during peak hours:

USA-Seattle - ExpressVPN 26.42Mbps / Astrill 61.63Mbps
Luxembourg - ExpressVPN 19.07Mbps / Astrill 15.86Mbps
Singapore - ExpressVPN 190.83Mbps / Astrill 264.05Mbps

Downloaded some big files from MEGA (file hosting service) via USA-Seattle server, ExpressVPN average speed is 56Mbps but Astrill is 184Mbps.

Since ExpressVPN have 30-day money-back guarantee, I've requested for a refund before the 30 days is up and decided to stay with Astrill for another 2 more years.

Hi guys, I'm new to VPNs & would like to seek some advises from u all regarding this.

I will be attached to china for 2 months, and will be buying a china sim card over there. Did some research that the great firewall of china is blocking all non-Chinese social media platform(Facebook, whatsapp, youtube, gmails,..). Even some VPN have been blocked too.

Therefore I like to check anyone has experience working and using a VPN in China?
as I would to subscribe an VPN service which I can use over there. (maybe will keep using, as I just recently discover the benefits of VPN).

Mainly usage will be streaming Video(YouTube) and to use our common social media platform(Above), will be using it on laptops & mobile phones.

Don't bother with commercial VPNs as they will be blocked eventually. You can host your own VPN from your own network with your own router, some routers will have a straight forward VPN creation setup page.

Thank you for the information, but because currently I am only needing it for around 2+ months and I do not have the technical knowledge of setting up the own VPN(which is an barrier for me).

Therefore would like to just subscribe with commercial VPNs to help me with that few months.

What router do you use? It may be as simple as clicking a few menus.
