I've tried both "top tiered" VPNs like expressvpn and NordVPN.. speed sucks for both and both I requested for refund within a week.. purevpn was one of the first few I've tried due to the low cost but it's even worse.. based in HK and had user data logging saga previously..

now it's just windscribe at 0.40usd per month mostly for Netflix purposes..

but my daily driver configured on my router and for speed/torrenting purposes I always go back to PIA.. for me it's one of the fastest and most reliable in terms of speed and server uptime.. their torrenting servers with free port forwarding feature also have surprising fast speed despite the distance..

but sadly I have to say that if you are not their existing subscriber, I don't think their price is competitive anymore given their recent price increase.. but luckily I also bought the 3 years plan which works out to be 1.28usd per month.

another thing is that customer service for both the above mentioned VPN is not very impressive. that's one caveat that I have to mention. but although you get a useless robot on windscribe's website, their CS and developers are actually quite helpful and responsive on Reddit. they have a subreddit which is way better that the chat bot.

PIA on the other hand removed both their livechat and forums on their website.. you have to log issues by submitting request tickets. but to be honest, I've never had to contact the CS for both VPN so far since both have quite easy to use apps for most platforms out there.

so windscribe for Netflix and geo-unblocking - 0.40usd
and PIA for daily use / home coverage via router / torrenting - 1.28usd

= 1.68usd per month..

still cheaper than paying 3 years for NordVPN to get 1.99usd and slower speed.

I just subscribed to Surfshark after doing some intensive research. Able to netflix and climb bukit Timah. The official website is now running a sale at USD 1.99 per month. Don't know the sale will last for how long.

Pm me to know how to get further discounts. I managed to subscribed at USD 1.20 per month.
Hi, pls PM discount code. Thanks.

Am using Surfshark VPN.

The recent update to 2.3.1 caused a very slow start to connect to "singapore" server. Prior to the update, it takes around 1-3 second to connect. After the update, even after 3-4 minute still put the "still connecting". Tried cancel, exit and re-connect but same thing persists. No issues with other countries so far, only sg.

And when I am able to connect to "sg" server, it used to be 270-340mbps. Now after the update, it is only able to achieve 30-40mbps. Even connection to australia or HK provides 200-230mbps. anyone has any clue to this or fix?

don't have a surfshark acct but based on what you stated.. may be due to poor routing of traffic tunnel.. try to raise a support ticket to their CSO to highlight this and see if they can look into the issue.

Yeah, sort of to be working for now. Noticed that they do have a couple of SG ip addresses and one of them (the one that starts with 184 or 185), has a considerably slower speed than the other. Gutted we're unable to choose the server ip or something. Only heng suay connect and disconnect. :

Thanks for the check!

am trying to get surfshark smart dns to work on samsung tv for netflix. i can view the content but unable to play (got msg that detect am using proxy)

before that, was trying openvpn on asus router. that didn't work as well since Netflix seems to be able to detect proxy use?
