Just some quick updates based on my experiences this week.

1) Free ads supported bVPN works. So the paid version should work as well.

2) FlyVPN is targeting customers going into China (most likely approved by Chinese authority like Transocks and SpeedIn). They explicitly say that they do not support going out of China.

3) purevpn is not very consistent. Most of the time the HK server will work but not always. The SG server never works for me.

4) On iOS, Shadowrocket client app is pretty decent to support SS, SSR and V2Ray. On Android, V2RayNG is good client to support all three protocols.

5) Tunsafe VPN (wireguard client) free servers do not work.

6) Last year in Dec 2018, I tested free Turbo VPN which worked. It still works. Not recommended though based on many negative reviews.

One more option. Speedify is really fast and works in China (China Mobile 100Mbps Fibre Internet), tested with free account, 2GB per month only.



Without VPN.


BTW, in China when the telco says 100Mbps you will get higher than 100Mbps.

The IPTV plus Fibre Internet from China Mobile is really cheap at RMB20 per month. The IPTV box is locked but still got enough contents and selected apps.

Cable TV is still available but the cable company also moves to Fibre for new buildings. I am in a small town so no 1Gbps plan yet (only in big cities).

What do you need for that kind of speed? In reality that speed is just an ideal case, with the VPN client, the VPN server and the speedtest server all in Singapore.

If either the vpn server or the speedtest server is outside of Singapore, it will be difficult to maintain higher speed than 150-200Mbps.

Speedify VPN is not that expensive. You can give it a try. They have three year plan promotion.

I am in SG, VPN Server is SG, Speedtest server is in SG. But still 200mbps max.

200Mbps is already very good for a VPN.

What is the VPN? What is the client device? PC or Mobile Phone? If PC,Ethernet or wireless?

You may want to give Speedify a try. They have quite a few SG servers.

And in the end, what is the goal you want to achieve?

Previous results by fellow forum member ju5tme shows a handful of VPN can achieve 200Mbps. But how many of them can deliver 200Mbps most of the time?

Achievable download speed
Speedify 81.4% @729Mbps
Tunnelbear 29.3% @270Mbps
Windscribe 28.9% @261Mbps
VPN Unlimited 27.2% @255Mbps
Cyberghost 25.7% @234Mbps
Buffered VPN 22.8% @209Mbps
NordVPN 21.5% @197Mbps
PIA 20.4% @184Mbps
ivacy 20% @169Mbps
ExpressVPN 16.2% @144Mbps

Checking with surfshark/windscrib users, can you all access Abema TV (japanese web streaming service) and netflix japan?

Planning to hop over from torguard if either supports them.
