Other then DNS leak.. im more towards ISP knows that you are connecting to the VPN server since the VPN IP address you connect to is the same IP address the destination sees it.

For example, I create an account and my real IP address is being logged(assuming no vpn at this point). Few days later I got a VPN and continue using.

Even though im using VPN now, my real IP was being logged at the start and from that they can tell which ISP I am from. Subsequent usage of that account and if need require they can ask the specific ISP to see which address is going to that VPN IP address and from there trace to the user right?


For discussion sake, exploring the idea that even with VPN still can trace back to you from co-relation with data they have at the start.

Not true, PIA and Torguard do not log any traffic or session data, whereas astrill keeps session data meaning your IP address.
why u so stubborn sia....


A world without logs....is it possible? Oh wait, North Korea don't keep logs!
NOOO! because China keep logs for them

PIA just released their iOS app
Tried the PIA app and while the interface looks really pleasent, I've had trouble connecting to the VPN while on those free WiFi networks. Had to switch back to the OpenVPN app to connect back to PIA.

using Torguard for climbing as it apprently does not keep logs..speed and ease of use still ok.

and just to clear the air, it states clearly on their FAQ that they do not keep logs, so why still argue??

I'm having terrible speed now after 2 weeks use of Torguard, initially was still ok and fast connection too.

Now after 2 wks, speed either get lesser or not moving at all for my BT.

on my phone, using China vpn always fail to connect, only once a while get connected. Or either got connected but Public IP still showing existing ip address and take very long to verify. These never happened during the 2 wks.

all these happened after 2 wks use, is it now too many signing up or only the initial 2 wks try to let you enjoy so that you won't ask for refund under their 1 wk money-back guarantee.

hmm.. my torrent speeds are constant (not amazingly fast like when not connected to VPN) but it's constant. Maybe you can share what torrent you downloading then i try and see the speed?

I'm interested to see TG vs other vpn in terms of torrent speed.

Maybe we can all use this Ubuntu 15.04 Desktop (64-bit) as a test and post our results here. Don't worry, it's perfectly legal to download.

Quote your speed (in MB/s) & VPN provider.

Newbie question, apology if its asked before.

1) SH fibre user here, will be signing up a 1 year vpn service for netflix, amoung PIA, torguard, astrill or others, which vpn provides more stable connection with SH?

2) Will be climbing hill for a few eps of the past US drama if netflix doesnt have it, may i say, the vpn that im getting for my SH fibre, will probably be stable as well for hill climbing?

3) Do we need bitcoin to purchase secure vpn services for the anonymity, or just simple paypal payment will do?

Broadband speed = 200Mbps
Astrill during peak hour = 120Mbps (or 14.5MB/s)

For those using TorGuard, which servers are you using for torrents? I'm putting in a ticket for port forwarding but it's done on a server by server basis, so I'd like to know which is generally the better server to open up the port.

same here, without vpn the speed is constant.. but behind a vpn the speed varies and can drop as much as 90% compare to without.

will PM you the file link to try.
