Use Astrill for video streaming from geo-locked locations, it's not safe for P2P.

For P2P, PIA is the preferred choice but due to over subscription, their HD video streaming is now almost unusable (unless you don't mind SD quality).

*** tested on both VQ & ST 500Mbps fibre connections

Correct.

If you need both (i.e. 2-in-1), there's actually another pretty good VPN provider ...

Video streaming not as good as Astrill (but way better than PIA) & P2P not as fast as PIA but just as safe.

Price is between Astrill and PIA too

I bet you've never experienced / witnessed a dozen policemen + lawyers from anti-piracy org storming in to your office/house to want to take such risk.

Might as well just P2P w/o VPN. Faster that way

P2P cannot be tracked?
Your English fail ?
His English did not fail, your understanding about P2P concept failed Odex's actions against file-sharing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
