how can I use VPN.ac to watch chinese drama on iqiyi? I just paid for VPN.ac and connect to taiwan server but iqiyi & mi video can't load.
Wrong VPN to use for China content. VPN.ac is for people inside China to bypass the Great Firewall, not for people outside to go into China.

You have to use specific VPN like Transocks 穿梭 or SpeedIn 快帆 for China geo-blocked content.

That being said iQiyi has a Taiwan version and you can try that.

You can also ask VPN.ac customer service if VPN.ac can provide a mainland China server for you -- I doubt that but no harm trying.

Thank you for the advice. Already got refund for VPN.ac. Can I ask what's the benefit of subscribing to Transocks or SpeedIn other than ad-free? Is there a boost in speed as I find the free version of Transocks is able to load iqiyi at HD with ease already.

Transock got two version, ad supported version and the pro version.

If you are happy with the free version of Transocks like I do, no need to pay for it. The ads are not bad. And you get 720p which is the max you can get from those Youku/iQiyi/Tencent Video without paying for VIP.

On the other hand if you want better experiences, pay for the VIP for iQiyi to get 1080p HDR and no ads. Then you may start to see whether the speed of Transocks ads supported version is good enough or not.

For SpeedIn, the free line is not good and the VIP line is definitely better than the free line. You can try the VIP line for free in 30 minutes block by checking in from the Android version. Every check-in (once per day) gets 30 minutes.

All depends on what you need.

Overall best value is probably Surfshark and Nord VPN if you ask such a general question.

But for specific use cases things will be different.

I can try but no promises especially if your "problem" requires too much effort for me to type out as a reply to you.. I am currently not in sg until someone around mid of April so I only browse when I have the time privilege of given time.


not sure if anyone else realised but windscribe's VPN server for Netflix Japan is now up and running already.



**edit**
and WindFlix Canada as well!

so now windscribe have 4 Netflix Servers.
- US

I got the free 50gb per month. When I connect thru the windscribe app on windows, it always disconnects and reconnects. I think free version is like that.

I bought the cheap 1 year plan during BF sales to try out. So far, the NF compatibility is very good.

My Astrill subscription is ending soon.

I am looking for someone to share this account. We can share the cost.

I am just using it for climbing and single use only.

Please PM me.

Is anyone having speed issues with NordVPN?

NordVPN seems to give me 10 times slower speed. Tested using Android Speedtest App, on a very high-end Samsung Galaxy device.

SingTel 4G network LTE
Download 97.6Mbps
Upload 41.4Mbps

SingTel 4G network LTE through NordVPN Singapore server
Download 6.35Mbps
Upload 10.5Mbps
