interested to know too, many people say it's Unotelly.

Unotelly have trials i believe, can give it a try.

Just a question, ajs sports is billed in which currency ah? USD? Euro?
unotelly not very reliable cause AJS will block them from time to time. Hola also kenna. Just last week kenna like this when i was on trial. Couldn't watch and had to get trial purevpn to watch.

Unotelly is almost unusable now with AJ. Even if you can access the channels, the "fairusebreach" error keeps coming up.

Is purevpn geoblocked with AJ now? From my experience, the connection speed to Egypt is a hit and miss, sometimes fast while slow at times. Btw do take note of purevpn refund policy, if you exceed a certain bandwidth usage, they will not refund even if it is within the 3 days money back period.

No it's not. Watch CL ytd with it. Just that the streaming alittle slow leh.

Read that Egypt internet is not as sophisticated as the rest of the world. Guess it will the same for other vpn provider as well unless anyone got better experience with other providers. The price of purevpn, i think it's quite good with their discount.

i thought hotspot shield is good, until I saw the results of this:

Tracking Test

100% of the trackers are not blocked.....

So which free VPN services is good to do all these blocking?

I signed up for ipvanish's trial last month. Their usa server was quite fast. But there was a big issue with the geolocation of their servers. I connected to a few of their other servers and when i checked my ip, it wasn't that of the server's stated country. The geolocation was all messed up. Morever their vpn software was buggy and gave me lots of problems.

Good for you, I am also using them. I think Astrill or PIA is the way to go, however Astrill's software and Asuswrt router applet are great features that no one compares with.

Advice

Hi Bros,

Been reading this thread with interest and seeking advice.

I am looking for VPN provider for the following interest of mine:

1. Smoother experience playing online MMOs and to test out region locked games (eg Korean/China/USA only games)
2. HK TVB serial movies
3. Torrent Downloads
4. US movies

I am a complete noob when it comes to IT so looking for a simple but robust solution. I dont know how to modify routers/programming/network configuration etc. Currently on Singtel fibre. Budgetwise most vendors are charging +/- SGD12/mth and I'm ok with that.

I came across flyvpn through a gamer's blog but after reading this thread, it seems Astrill is a popular choice.

Please advise.

Many thanks in advance!

Cheers,
B

I will say give Astrill a try. No problem with TVB and USA video streams. For gaming and torrent, it is better for you to take up a trial with them and try out their different servers.

Their tech support is quite helpful and i am sure they will guide you with the setup.
