What's wrong with 200Mbps? It is very decent already with VPN.
Considering Express VPN give me over 300 why should i make do with 200? Lol

Hello, I'm late to the party. But I see a lot of code requests. These are referral codes?

Big diff in pricing? Only surfshark codes available?

Yes big difference in pricing. The codes for Surfshark are the most popular here because of the low cost (US$0.62 per month).

Nord VPN codes are also available.

I am not using either one myself since I paid for purevpn subscription last Dec (US$0.99 per month for 12 months).

oh wow, that is huge diff indeed.

Would a kind soul fwd me the code pls. NordVPN one too. I've been monitoring Nord, but this pricing for surfshark is tempting.

Edit: THANKS for referrals guys!

Just tried & CMI. Lol.

My ave wifi speed is 400+ mbps with no VPN. With Express VPN smart connect its slightly over 300 mbps. With nord autoconnect its slightly over 200 mbps.
ExpressVPN now so fast? I just test it 1.5years ago it was no more than 40Mbps.

It will depend on the offer, either one year or two years or even longer.

I do not use Surfshark. I subscribe to purevpn for 12 months but it is not very good. I will change to other VPNs when it expires late this year.

For my use cases, free Windscribe and Astrill Android version are good enough already. I am more into Chinese Entertainment so I may pay for the China VPN later (Transocks or AJS).
In the end I choose to pay for AJS 爱加速 for my Chinese Entertainment use case, RMB198 for one year.

I chose AJS because I used it when it was free, the number of servers were impressive, the speed was not bad either with the right servers.

I have paid VIP for Youku Video, QQ Music and Xiami Music, all three apps mostly work without VPN but some contents still require China VPN. AJS works fine for them.

I also tested Tencent Video and iQiyi, both work as well. But now lots of contents require paid VIP membership. And ads can be long without VIP. So if you are interested in the contents (both are better than Youku Video), it is better you pay the VIP.
