Yes I'm using QQ Music VIP, it works even without VPN.
Just need to find someone reliable to top up your Alipay account and buy QQ coins from Taobao.
Thanks for the info.

Actually for iOS, you can just buy VIP 绿钻 in S$ with in-app-purchases from Apple App Store.

1 month S$2.98
3 months S$6.98
6 months S$12.98
12 months S$25.98

绿钻豪华版
1 months S$4.48
3 months S$9.98
6 months S$17.98
12 months S$38.98

I have not checked Google App Store yet.

Another potential easier way is to use WeChat. Add a Singapore Credit Card to your WeChat account and then you can receive WeChat Ang Bao in RMB. Pay S$ to your friends here in Singapore who has WeChat money and they can send you to Wechat Ang Bao in RMB. I believe you can buy QQ Points using WeChat.

But I have never tried this myself. I am happy with the free Xiami Music.

Xiami Music vip from Apple App Store
1 month S$2.98
3 months S$6.98
6 months S$10.98
12 months S$21.98

For Paid version, I believe QQ Music should be better since it has more songs.

Just paid for the pro version of speedin. I bought the 90 days package. Now they have the buy 1 get 1 free so it is kinda of cheap compared to others.



Not great but I think solutions like Transocks and SpeedIn are still usable.

I tested Transocks free version and the speed test is like this
http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/i/2951234340
13.2Mbps to China Unicom Shanghai server. Should be okay for Tecent Video or similar, HD or even 1080p. I believe you need to pay S$4.48 to S$32.98 to get real usages based on Apple App Store in-app-purchases info.

They have the paid pro version, from Apple App Store in-app-purchases price for reference.
S$6.98 for 30days
S$10.98 for 60days
S$63.98 for 360days

I can not test SpeedIn free version since the free line is very slow, probably only good for web browsing.

SpeedIn pricing from Apple App Store:
S$8.98 for 30days
S$19.98 for 90days
S$51.98 for 360days

For my rooted Android TV box, I used China Tunnel and tested 1080p Tencent Video VIP and it is okay.

And ExpressVPNís speed at 7Mbps should be okay for HD video as well if not that good for 1080p.

I am using Android.
How do you add a Singapore Credit Card to WeChat account?
I thought only a China based bank card is allowed.

I have added an OCBC master card there and I was able to receive WeChat Ang Bao after doing that.

WeChat —>Me —> Wallet —> Cards —> Add a card

tat source not reliable.
i do not see any PRC complain abt any blocking on their telegram group.
targeted blocking was normal for those well known VPN providers.

机场provider ain't those topical VPN provider.
I think from China out.. VPN no problem
Outside into China.. then got problems bah

nope. no issues at all. i tested once in SG. divert alicloud SG to alicloud shenzhen. then connect my mediabox to alicloud SG.

and it's not a VPN. they all use socks proxy servers. you will have total control over all ur connections by setting up traffic rules. or even blocking ads.

nope. i only host my own ssr server at home in singapore as backup.
the provider i using costs me rmb60 a yr only. and they have ss/ssr/v2ray/Cisco Anyconnect.
Thus i dun have urge to own my VPS at the moment.

if u interested, there's many step-by-step video guide on youtube. especially for google cloud now. Since google gives 1 yr free usage.

No, I was in Singapore. Try to ask your friend here who has WeChat RMB money in the account to send you RMB 1.0 to see if that helps. And try to set the language to Chinese.

Edit: answer by sensei83 already.
