i see.. may i ask why need alternative for astrill? is it they closing down?
They are not closing down. Some of us just like to have backup for certain reasons, be it backup of ISP connection, backup of VPN etc.

I actually don't need so many server locations. So trying to find a cheaper alternative but so far no luck.

You can have as many VPN apps installed as you wish, but you can only run one at the same time.

That's only for 1 device. They have another annual subscription offer @ US$7 for 5 devices.

Just signed up for fun since it's so cheap (I'm already on Astrill, TorGuard & PIA)

Can provide some feedback on Torguard? I need it mainly for streaming videos like Huluplus, Sports etc. Want to know if they are faster or as good as Astrill.

For video streaming only, CyberGhost is currently better than TorGuard but neither is better than Astrill.

They (CyberGhost) have improved a lot (esp. their U.S. servers) since the last time I tested a few months back.

* tested on SingTel & VQ fibre so YMMV depending on which ISP you're on.

Thanks for the quick summary. Guess i will have to stick with Astrill. Seems like not many can match Astrill's speed for US servers. I have found Vyprvpn to be rather close in terms of speed for US and HK servers, but they are more expensive and the client is little buggy.

Yeah nothing beats Astrill's 15 sec mark for Netflix to toggle HD mode ... not even VQ's own FreedomVPN. And that's not even on using Astrill's SG server (which is fast for Netflix but problematic for sites like Viki and Hulu).

As a comparison, CyberGhost's LA server hits the HD mode in 2+ min and PIA takes > 5 min to do the same.
