Sorry to quote your earlier post but that Angmo has nice updates for simple guide and chronological update to China vpns.

His China VPN updates for 2018:
https://www.tipsforchina.com/mobile/...2018-blog.html
An interesting point: SpeedTest results may not do justice to some VPNs.

But he did get the right speed from SpeedTest a day later.

//////////
NordVPN Taiwan #16

Something strange is going on with this server. I can't get very good speed on speedtest.net, but I can get fast speeds on YouTube and torrents.

Here are a few speed tests on NordVPN

Taiwan #16 OpenVPN UDP using the standard OpenVPN config file with the open source OpenVPN client.

40Mbps streaming speed on YouTube.

And here is the speed downloading a 1.86 GB torrent.

NordVPN TW16 torrent speed:

Downloaded in under 8 minutes with an average speed of 3.9 MB/s = 31.2 Mbps. The peak speed was around 5.5 MB/s = 44Mbps.

Strange that I can't get anything higher than 10Mbps on speedtest.net.

From the name of PIA you will know it is for Private Internet Access and not for bypassing Geo-blocked content. 😄



I've been using paid PIA for the past 2 years.. usually connected to SG server since it's set up on the router and is used more for ip masking and privacy purposes and i seldom use it for geoblocking...

...
if you are looking for a VPN to unblock geoblocking for Netflix, this VPN is not for you.. it will be detected by Netflix..

thanks for helping me to answer and find my past post to quote.. I answer this same question until lazy to answer already lol..

for Netflix... I think only a handful of VPN are constantly working around to bypass it.. but just manage your expectation and understand that it's a ongoing cat and mouse game. try expressvpn, nordvpn, windscribe.

did you not see the promo code on CCL website before clicking to the website?

+ this deal is if you purchase thru stacksocial website. not directly on PIA website.
