I've been going with PIA for a while now. Use it mainly to get around content restrictions in the US. Speeds are pretty good when connected to servers in Silicon Valley in the US, around 25 mbits/s. Enough to get a 1080p stream running without buffering. YMMV
I try their free trial but could not unblock Hong Kong Site whileas others can unblock.

Hi bros,

I'm currently on 600mbps VQ plan(renewing to 1gbps this weekend). Currently on VQ's Freedom VPN and am quite happy with it. Using it mainly for geo-restricted content.

However, Freedom VPN is obviously not able to work on 3G/4G. As such, I wanna use get a VPN so that I can stream netflix on the go.

At home, I usually also climb BT so getting a VPN is another plus. Will also be using the connection to stream netflix.

As such, can anyone recommend me on which VPN to use? The requirement are:
1. Decent speeds on BT
2. Stream 1080p on netflix with no or minimum buffer.

Thanks bros.
But it is expensive compare to others that offer 1 yr subscription. Of course price not a big issue.

Have you tried accessing it from a server in a different location? It could be region locked.

They seem to have increased the price for 2 year plan? US$149.99 was the price for 2 year plan last month (even US$125.99 as stated here), now they increased it to US$169.99 ahead of Black Friday...

Some users here paid US$89 & US$99 for 2 year plan, which were fantastic deals I think. Let's see what they will come up with.

I paid US$99 (S$134) last year for the 2-year plan which includes StealthVPN, RouterPro VPN & connect 2 devices at the same time. Surprisingly the China servers still working when I enabled the StealthVPN.

The purpose of vpn is to unblock such regional blocking. Honestly i tried free vpn also can unblock and yet a pay one could not unblock. What a great one.

They are terrible IMO. Their OS X app does not even support OpenVPN protocol. Yes I know there is Tunnelblick or Viscosity but we are talking about basics here...

Would stay far far away from PureVPN. Horrible speeds and I cancelled my sub in half an hour.

Go for better VPNs like PIA, AirVPN or Astrill.
