Just an update, contacted purevpn online support and the support is pretty good (first guy does not know but the second guy is precise to the point). They provided the solution for Windows and Android by providing two dedicated server IP addresses and one of them works. I will ask for iOS solution later.

Speed is so so but at least works for 720p streaming of Youku (tested with 长安十二时辰 under Windows).

Haha, now the US$11.88 is totally worth it.

That being said, not recommend others to get purevpn. Some old comments mentioned as "pureCrap" if compared to better VPNs.
An update, the provided solution for Android and iOS manual OS VPN configuration do not work for me.

Edit: change the protocol and it works under Android but the speed is slow.

Under Windows, the provided dedicated IP (detected as China Telecom Shanghai) works fine within the Windows app.

Speedtest with China Telecom and China Unicom speed test servers shows download speed of about 37Mbps and upload speed of only 0.4Mbps.

Streaming 1080p Youku is not okay. Only 720p. Found out Youku now provides 4k option for VIP under Windows. 4k option used to be only for TV version 酷喵影视 VIP.

That is a very good deal. Thanks.

I will keep Surfshark in mind once I am fed up with purevpn (US$11.88 one year subscription offer).

But mostly I am hopping to get a good offer for Going-into-China VPN like FlyVPN or Transocks or SpeedIn.

SpeedIn 快帆 VIP: US$40.98 for 450days (360 days plus 90days free promotion), 3 device

Transocks 穿梭 VIP:US$60.98 one year, 3 device.

SpeedCN Gold member: US$48 per year 2 device and claims to support 2k.

SpeedCN Diamond member: US$96 per year 4 device and claims to support 4k.

UfunR: free now

FlyVPN: US$80 per year

Windscribe 20GB free account is one of the best free VPN out there, very good for web browsing security (eg: public WiFi) and a bit of streaming too.

I have watched some YouTube videos by some Chinese Youtubers.

One of them is getting above 500Mbps -600Mbps download speed from SS/V2Ray servers hosted on Google Cloud VPS in HK/TW, from their home broadband of 500Mbps (which can reach 600Mbps max).

This is pretty impressive. He also tested Wireguard which gets about 100Mbps.

A few things he mentioned.
1) using software router (eg: low end x86 machine running OpenWRT based distribution) is faster than using HW router

2) client device CPU plays a part as encryption/description needs CPU power

3) VPS is of course very important. For free options Google Cloud is the best (US$300 per year free).

4) SS/V2Ray protocol is faster than Wireguard.

Take note SS/V2Ray are very popular in China because traditional VPN apps and OpenVPN servers are often blocked. Now it is said that even SS servers are easily blocked so they have to add things on top of SS to bypass GFW.
